Sightseeing at Grace Cathedral
Explore this awe-inspiring San Francisco icon.
Experience the wonder of Grace! Discover this striking Gothic cathedral famed worldwide for its labyrinths, Ghiberti doors, Interfaith AIDS Chapel, and inclusivity. Wander through the building as you admire the cathedral’s stunning stained glass, Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ, and religious and secular art by Keith Haring, David LaChappelle, Ansel Adams, and more. Learn about the church's history, art, religion, architecture, and social justice initiatives, along with San Francisco's history, including the 1906 fire and the founding of the United Nations. Walk one of our two labyrinths to finish your visit.
An interactive self-guided journey is included with admission or add a Guided Tour for a deeper exploration. A children’s map is also available to explore the cathedral on a treasure hunt. While your admission fee supports Grace’s inclusive mission to be welcoming to all, those seeking a private place for prayer or meditation will be welcomed at no admission cost during sightseeing hours.
