Monthly Program Venue Update
Beginning with our April 14, 2015 program, we have a new venue for our monthly programs:
Milton Marks Auditorium
Hiram Johnson State Building
455 Golden Gate Avenue (between Larkin and Polk, across from the Federal Building)
Some street parking is available; or use the Civic Center Garage (355 McAllister Street, between Larkin and Polk) or the Hastings Law School Garage (376 Larkin Street, at the corner of Larkin and Golden Gate). Nearby transit includes the 5-Fulton, 19-Polk, 47-Van Ness, 49-Mission/Van Ness, or the BART/MUNI Civic Center Station.
Please note: You will need to pass through security to enter the building. Be prepared to pass through metal detectors and have your bags searched. Allow extra time.
SFMHS and The Old San Francisco Mint
It is with a heavy heart that the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society announces that we will be vacating The Old San Francisco Mint by August 1, 2015.
Monthly programs, walking tours, and the Annual Awards Luncheon will continue, as will the publication of Panorama and The Argonaut. However, there will no longer be Sundays At The Mint, regularly scheduled Old Mint Tours, or rental activities in the building.
Thank you for your support.
Sundays At The Mint
Due to accessibility issues, we announce, regrettably, that Sundays At The Mint has come to an end. Thank you for your interest and past participation.
FlipSide, a part of The San Francisco Museum and Historical Society, was founded to engage a younger generation of San Francisco history enthusiasts. The program is currently on hiatus due to the imminent departure of SFMHS from the Old Mint. Meanwhile, please visit the FlipSide page on Facebook.
Granite Lady Videos
SFMHS is pleased to present the first two videos in The Granite Lady series, videos that will give visitors to the Old Mint an introduction to the story of the building. These videos were produced by the Bay Area Video Coalition with the support of the S. H. Cowell Foundation, Autodesk, Chevron Corporation, and Turner Construction.
