  • My first time visiting and the two woman that were working there were absolutely amazing with answering questions that I had regarding the Tenderloin. What a cool place to stop by and see how the District came along. The museum was really nice and also bought a few things from the gift desk. Thanks!
  • I really had no idea what the museum was about, but I was looking for stuff nearby to do while in town for work. This turned out to be a really fascinating, well put together slice of history. Definitely recommended.
