The de Young Museum was founded in 1885 in Golden Gate Park. But after sustaining damage from the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, it re-opened in 2005 in a state-of-the-art facility designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron. The museum collection includes art from the 17th through the 20th centuries, art of the native Americas, Africa and the Pacific, as well as textiles and contemporary crafts. The museum also features a museum shop, as well as a cafe boasting a range of dishes made with fresh ingredients from local family farmers.
