The SFMOMA has a great permanent collection as well as exciting exhibits that they introduce frequently. The museum also has a great kids area to make art fun and interesting for children too. The price isn't bad for students but general admission can be pretty expensive depending on the exhibition.

This is one of the absolute best art museums in the country. Their scholarship has produced some excellent exhibitions which have toured and been exhibited at other museums for decades. Additionally, their online content is superb.
