SAN FRANCISCO—The de Young museum has been on display in the Bay Area for 124 years. When the museum was first introduced in 1925 it was free to the public. On Saturday, October 19, the de Young Museum will open its doors free of charge to all residents who live in the Bay Area every Saturday.
The permanent collection holds artwork from Salvador Dali and authentic fashion from designer Christian Dior.
On the de Young website, the museum adds that “Free Saturdays will include engaging art experiences for the entire family, including the de Youngsters studio, family art making, gallery guides, enhanced gallery tours with discussion groups, sketching in the permanent collection galleries and more.”
General admission will continue to be free every first Tuesday of the month. Special exhibitions are still subject to full price admission.
