As beautiful inside as outside, we were amazed by the beauty of this site, with its perfectly maintained gardens, a beautiful visit rich in history more »
Stunning views. Magnificent setting. Great art. All this in wonderful Bay Area setting. Cool, not hot and sticky like valley. No wonder this is many folks favorite city! Frisco is the greatest!! I left my heart in Frisco and most of my money too! Still it's well worth it.
I love museums and though this one was small, it's still a beautiful building that you have to see if you love architecture. It's also in a picturesque location where you can get a clear view of the golden gate bridge as long as its not too foggy. If you need a break from the crowds in the city, come check this place out, especially on a weekday. Parking is free here too, if you can find a spot.
