Here Are The Next 3 Free Admission Days At SFMOMA

Put these days in your calendar and be sure to reserve in advance!

Calling all art aficionados who love a good bargain! You might have missed SFMOMA’s most recent free admission day on April 26, but lucky for us, they just announced 3 more free days over the next 2 months. It’s a great opportunity to see SFMOMA’s enormous new immersive exhibition Nam June Paik, opening May 8! Be sure to reserve a timed ticket for one of the following dates:

Sunday, May 16 – Free Family Day

  • On free family days at SFMOMA, admission is free for a group of up to 4 adults accompanying one child or teen (18 and under).

Saturday, May 22 – Free Admission Day

  • The entire museum will be free to visitors on this day. Children 18 and under always get in free, but it is recommended to reserve a timed ticket for them as well. There is a limit of 2 adult tickets per reservation.
  • This is also the 5th anniversary of SFMOMA’s building reopening, and the penultimate day of the Future Histories exhibition.

Thursday, June 24 – Free Admission Day

  • The entire museum will be free to visitors on this day. Children 18 and under always get in free, but it is recommended to reserve a timed ticket for them as well. There is a limit of 2 adult tickets per reservation.

Keep in mind that 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.

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.
  • Nam June Paik (May 8 – October 3): This wildly anticipated exhibition 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.

General admission usually costs $25 for adults, so these free admission days are 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.

Don’t forget to reserve a spot for these upcoming free admission days!
