  • The Art Institute is quaint, but the best part is the roof from which one can observe one of the most beautiful views of San Francisco. Very recommended climb because it's free!

  • The Institute is very nice, a new structure in the form of a Spanish village where exhibitions and run workshops for artists. The unmissable is a huge mural painted by Diego Rivera. The painting is beautiful and gives rise to reflection. Admission is free.

  • The view is amazing you get walk around everywhere in the Building
  • The San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) is an exceptional place for modern and contemporary art lovers! The Diego Rivera Mural can be found here. without the monastic atmosphere of most of the museums. You can discover and enjoy works of art quietly, and get a true relation with the works exposed there. You can enjoy refreshments at the cafeteria, with a wonderful view over San Francisco! We visited this place in August 2012 The SFAI is an inescapable place.
  • Awesome studio spaces and art galleries
  • If you are here on a weekday, you can walk right in. If you take a left and then a right and walk all the way down you will find some great places to take photos of the bay.
  • A beautiful building with an amazing view of the northern side of the city.
