De Young

If you’re looking for an enjoyable outing for the whole family, look no further than San Francisco’s de Young museum in Golden Gate Park. From its intriguing architectural design to magnificent fine art exhibitions, there’s something to appeal to every visitor. Most Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. – noon the museum offers a Family Program that includes tours of permanent collections and current exhibitions, followed by studio workshops taught by professional artist-teachers. There are programs for kids ages 4-6 and 7-12. Check the online calendar to confirm.
