May Is for Members

We wouldn't be here without our members, and May is when we make sure you know it!

All year we set aside Sunday mornings for members—10 a.m. to noon is just for you. This is the best time to visit: the drive to Pier 15 is easy, street parking is free (off of Embarcadero; look for signs), and the museum is quieter than the rest of the weekend. Join us for a leisurely Sunday morning, enjoy lunch at Seaglass restaurant, and then head out for your next adventure when the galleries start to get busier after noon.
