Save 25 bucks this Monday!
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) recently announced their next highly awaited Free Admission Day, and it’s Monday, April 26. Be sure to reserve a timed ticket before they sell out!
The entire museum will be free to visitors on this day. Children 18 and under always get in free, but they are recommended to reserve a timed ticket as well. SFMOMA asserts that there is a limit of 2 adult tickets per reservation, and some exhibitions will have limited capacity so as to respect social distancing requirements. You may add your party to a virtual waiting list for these exhibitions upon arrival. The museum is open from 10am to 5pm.
🥁🥁🥁 Our next #free day is… APRIL 26!
Come with a friend + spend a day at the museum on us. Don’t forget to reserve the timed tickets required for all visitors — even guests 18 and under, who always get in free!

General admission usually costs $25 for adults, so this is a real treat! According to their website, SFMOMA is able to offer free days thanks to their funders Martha and Bruce Atwater, Wayee Chu and Ethan Beard, Concepción S. and Irwin Federman, and The Hearst Foundations.
SFMOMA also offers Free Family Days, and the next one will occur on May 16. Admission is free for a group of up to 4 adults accompanying one child or teen (18 and under). Be sure to reserve your tickets in advance, as these also tend to go quickly.
SF MOMA is one of the City’s most famous museums, and you’ll find both large- and small-scale exhibitions to help you think critically about contemporary art in today’s society. If fine art isn’t your thing, this museum might change your mind! Be sure to take some awesome pictures while you’re at it. Current exhibitions are the following:
- Bay Area Walls (ongoing): Local artists respond to 2020 on large commissioned artworks displayed across 3 floors of the museum.
- Future Histories: Theaster Gates and Cauleen Smith (until May 23): Gates and Smith offer new perspectives on the past with archival photography, music, and video projections.
- Close to Home (until September 5): 7 Bay Area artists present their artistic, emotional, and political responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and other significant social events in 2020.
On May 8, SFMOMA will debut the widely anticipated exhibition Nam June Paik, which is a mesmerizing immersive experience showing over 200 works from the celebrated Korean American artist. It will be the first major show of Paik’s work in the U.S. in over 20 years.
