Event Details

You're invited to four festive days kicking off SFMOMA's expansion and our launch into off-site exhibitions and programs.

Museum admission is free to all, Thursday, May 30, through Sunday, June  2!

Thursday, May 30, 10:00 a.m. - 9:45 p.m.
Friday, May 31, 10:00 a.m. - 5:45  p.m.
Saturday, June 1, 10:00 a.m. - Sunday, June 2, 5:45 p.m.
(open all night, Sat p.m. - Sun a.m.!)

Thanks to the incredible response from the Bay Area community for our Countdown Celebration events on Sunday, we have taken reservations offline.

Admission to the museum is still possible, on a first-come, first-served basis. Crowded galleries and significant wait times should be expected.

To check out the terrific lineup of events planned for Sunday, please see the schedule below.

RSVPs help us anticipate numbers of guests so we can plan accordingly, but an RSVP is not a guarantee of admittance. With free admission and limited building capacity, we thank you for understanding that we may not be able to accommodate all visitors. Supplies such as programs, tote bags, etc. are also limited.

We look forward to seeing you this weekend!

Festivities include a celebratory kickoff party, 24-hour live art variety show, all-night gallery access, Family Day, and more. See the schedule below for  details.

RSVP now for your chance to receive a limited-edition SFMOMA On the Go deluxe tote bag!*

The fine print:

* RSVP does not guarantee entry. Entry into the museum is dependent on capacity. Crowds and lines should be expected.

* Tote bags can be picked up on-site at the tote bag pickup table on Thursday, May 30, 10:00 – 4:00 p.m.; Friday, May 31, 10:00 a.m. – 5:45 p.m.; Saturday, June 1, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.; Sunday, June 2, 10:00 – 3:00 p.m.  Show EventBrite RSVP confirmation to claim free tote bag. While supplies last. Bag quantities are limited.
