The de Young Museum in San Francisco showcases American arts and crafts from the 17th century through the modern era, from paintings and textiles to costumes and crafts. The collection also houses smaller collections of artwork from Central and South America, the Pacific Islands, and Africa.

    The collection includes thousands of objects and artefacts, and a major part of it was donated by John D. Rockefeller III and his wife, Blanchette. The museum, which opened in 1895 during the World's Fair, is located in Golden Gate Park and is amongst the most important museums of its kind.
