Located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the de Young was originally a Fine Arts Museum constructed for the California Midwinter International Exposition of 1894. After undergoing sever damage from the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes, a newly rebuilt de Young Museum, designed by the Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron, opened in 2005. This new design allows you to take a stroll through the sculpture garden of historic elements from the previous de Young structure. The ninth-floor Observation Level of the de Young’s Hamon Tower offers breathtaking 360-degree views of San Francisco and the Pacific Ocean.
