Explore San Francisco

Final Hours

After nearly two decades of bringing modern and contemporary art experiences to audiences in its iconic Third Street building, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will temporarily close its doors to the public next month on June 2 to prepare for two-and-a-half years of construction on the museum’s major expansion project. After June 2, SFMOMA will be on the go, presenting art experiences around the Bay Area until the museum’s expanded home reopens in early 2016. During the final four days before closure—Thursday, May 30, through Sunday, June 2—museum admission and all related festivities will be free to all. A special countdown celebration will kick off a new chapter in its 78-year history. Visitors will have an opportunity to party on the rooftop with cocktails and live music, stay up all night in the galleries and catch performances by 48 artists in a 24-hour variety show marathon, explore SFMOMA ’s landmark photography exhibition by Garry Winogrand and Christian Marclay’s 24-hour video masterpiece “The Clock,” and more.
