de Young Museum
This archival ledger page dramatically illustrates the severe impact that the 1906 earthquake had on the museum’s operations. Damage our building suffered as a result of the 1989 Loma Prieta tumbler (wink) necessitated the construction of our current digs designed by Herzog & DeMeuron. The new de Young opened in 2005 and features a series of base isolators that allow the building to remain stable even as the ground beneath it moves!
