  • Past by randomly and the stagecoach caught our eye. Its free to walk around and they had some pretty interesting displays about the history of Wells Fargo and San Francisco. Worth a look if you have.....  more »
  • Very interesting museum about the history of the gold rush, banking and stage coaches. Lots of information and items to look at. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • This was an accidental find that we thoroughly enjoyed. The best part was it is FREE, which was great with how much we were spending on our sightseeing around San Francisco. You don't need much time here. Maybe an hour or so to fully take in all the historical items. It really is worth the visit here. Located in the heart of the financial district, it is easy to get to, so you can make it an easy side trip on your sightseeing itinerary. There are some cute photo opportunities and two photo booths as well that will email you your funny memorable shots. I would say this is fun for all ages and historically very educational that isn't boring. It is worth the side trip and I would say a hidden gem that is a must see.
  • A small and free museum that introduces you to the historical times in the rise of the California and in turns most of the American banking and investment industry. The story and the artifacts are indeed very much of an advertisement of the company that the museum is named after but so what. As a newcomer into this country, I never knew much about the history of the gold rush, not even mention the role of this company in that history! Nice touch with taking your picture and sending it to the email.
