Bowers Museum reviews
This is a hidden gem of a museum. I was looking to fill a free afternoon and came across the Bowers Museum. It is located in a charming Mission style building that has lovely landscaped grounds...

What a lovely musuem tucked among a bustling neighborhood :) Very sweet, kind, welcoming staff - even the security guard knew lovely things about the property and took a few minutes to chat with us and share his favorite exhibits. Also there was quite the variety among the permanent collections - and some traveling ones that just wrapped. Local residents can get a discounted entry fee - but double check their website for all the relevant info. There was a decent sized gift shop on the way out, and a restaurant across the hall ~ all in all, I feel you can easily spend two to four hours there 😀
