My mum will be flying off back to Singapore early Thursday morning, so we took a day trip into the city to spend some time at the SFMoMA on Saturday. The museum reopened last year with a brand new expansion, making it the largest modern and contemporary art museum in America. It has 7 floors of beautiful space and the new building so seamlessly joins the old building that I hadn’t a clue which building I was in. Here’s a Smithsonian magazine article on ten things to love in the SFMoMa. It’s such a big space that we didn’t manage to see everything we wanted to see. Plus the 3yo was getting tired and so we had to leave. Another time! The 5yo said he really enjoyed the day at the museum, although when asked what his favourite part was, his answer was: the store!
