Series of articles on the grand opening in October 2005 of the new M.H. de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. The "sinuous copper-clad structure ... has been likened to a Mayan temple or a rusty aircraft carrier, complete with an observation deck." Includes news and opinion pieces, photos, a chronology of the museum back to 1893, and audio and video tours of the new museum building. From the website for the San Francisco Chronicle.
