This is a cool little museum with a lot of beat history. I am not a buff on it, and I enjoyed the exhibits. There is a lot to read in there. Also, it's in a book/record store which I thought was pretty cool. The guy behind the register that day was also really friendly and helpful, knowledgeable about the Bay Area, too.
Small and charming museum that really sinks you in the Beat movement. From the reception and the small talk with the vendors to the long and interesting movie were pleasant and really transported me to a different place and time. If you are into literature and Beat Generation this is a MUST!
