D is for the de Young Museum

@ de Young Museum

The de Young Museum, a favorite of San Francisco residents and visitors since 1895, is located at 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive in the heart of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

The de Young Museum had significant damage after the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989 and was renovated after a successful multimillion-dollar fundraising campaign re-opened on October 15, 2005. The de Young museum has successfully hosted artwork on loan from the Louvre, Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay, Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, Warhol Live, and The Quilts of Gee’s Bend.
