Fodor's Review

One of the city's cornerstones, this museum is a gorgeous Mediterranean-revival structure that houses outstanding collections of Asian, African, Native American, European, and American art. Major works here by American artists range from Hassam to O'Keeffe to Bellows and Morisot, but the museum is known for its collection of French artists, including Cézanne, Monet, Rodin, Gauguin, and Renoir. There are also photography exhibits that draw from a permanent collection of more than 14,000 works. The recent Hazel Hough Wing more than doubled the museum's exhibit space. A café offers visitors a lunch respite and a beautiful view of the bay. Docents give narrated gallery tours.

OK small museum

The permanent collection is modest sized and has a few nuggets of interest, but is not a must-see. It's more worthwhile if they have a good temporary exhibit. A bit pricey for what you get.
