I love this museum because it offers visitors a look at the world from Polynesia to Egypt AND provide an astonishing view of Golden Gate Park and the Western end of San Francisco from its tower. It is modern architecture with copper outer coating that will change and blend in with the area around it over time. Sitting in the Music Concourse in Gold Gate Park, it is framed by the brand new Academy of Sciences Building...with a living roof... just across the concourse and the historical bandshell. The museum also has a fabulous cafe that opens to the sculpture garden and a huge gift shop. The museum is also used for events.
