We are thrilled to introduce new ways for members and their guests to safely enjoy the exhibition including Member Wednesdays, Member and Donor Viewing Hours, and Virtual Tours. View upcoming member events. Join today and be among the first to experience the long-awaited reopening of the de Young during Member Wednesdays. Access to view Frida Kahlo is reserved exclusively for members and their allotted guests, every Wednesday throughout the run of the exhibition. Verify your membership or join today to reserve advanced tickets. Plus, select members and donors are invited to special viewing hours on select Mondays throughout the run of the exhibition.

At the time of Frida Kahlo’s death in 1954, a treasure trove of the artist's highly personal items—including jewelry, clothing, and prosthetics—were locked away. 50 years later, these belongings were unsealed—now they’re on view for the first time on the West Coast. Discover what these objects reveal about their now iconic owner in Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving. Digital wall labels are available in English and Spanish.

We are extending museum hours to 7:45 pm for Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving every Friday and Saturday throughout November.
