Untitled[edit]

The article is still pretty much a stub. It would be good to see some material on the original form of the building. I picked up a leaflet at the Exploratorium which showed a much grander building, but unfortunately the very patchy black and white image wasn't suitable for reproduction.

The design of the building could form a section all by itself.

More could be said of ongoing conservation efforts, and plans for the future. I think this grand building deserves a bit more yet before it could be said to be a complete article. I only visited for an hour or so and I'm now back in Australia - is there nobody local to do a bit of research? Pete 30 June 2005 01:47 (UTC)


New photo[edit]

I've included a new photo in this article. It's a panoramic view, and I think It could replace the previous two pictures. I'm not so sure about the size, just tell me what you think about this change. --Sam67fr 10:45, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Speaking just for myself, I think your new photo looks fine.

Coordinate error[edit]

{{geodata-check}}

The following coordinate fixes are needed for Palace of Fine Arts. The current marker is off to the east, over some houses. The marker should be at 37°48'10.60"N 122°26'54.10"W, right? Also, isn't the Exploratorium marker off, too? —76.105.145.143 (talk) 19:14, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Deor (talk) 22:46, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

1960s Demolishing and reconstruction[edit]

Are there some photos available of this? It would be a great addition to the article. Better yet, some photos showing the original dome murals and other few elements that weren't replicated in the new building. --76.105.145.143 (talk) 19:16, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
