Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room reviews
This hidden gem warrants a visit. It's like stepping inside 'old San Francisco,' but also relishing how it remains such a vibrant and relevant gathering place. more »
I attended a lecture here and the interior design was delightful, old San Francisco. Apparently the collectiion is restricted to members only, but outsiders can get in. Worth a quick visit. more »
If you don't have a membership with the library, the daily pass is $15. You have to purchase the daily pass even if you just want to sit at a desk with your laptop and study or work.
Walk in to this building and you are in a place that has frozen in time. Just the building not the ideas or knowledge gained here. This awesome place is to learn, share ideas, a get into a great chess game battle with some masters.
