For over 100 years, the de Young has withstood changing art trends and devastating earthquakes, becoming one of the country's most interesting, exciting museums. Their exemplary American collection includes important holdings in Native American and Spanish Colonial art, as well as many of the best artists to come out of West Coast. You'll also see Modern paintings and international contemporary works that rival those in New York. It's a California dream come true.
