On July 16th, 2016 the Tenderloin Museum will have been open for one year. Please join us in celebrating this important milestone at our free community day celebration from 10am-9pm, with free hourly programming from 1pm-8pm. The mission of the Tenderloin Museum is to inspire and serve the neighborhood. The museum’s permanent collection and Neighborhood Walking Tours offer locals and tourists alike an opportunity to learn the history of the Tenderloin and experience San Francisco’s most unique neighborhood, a history that has been routinely overlooked in historical accounts of San Francisco.

Programming Schedule:

1pm- Youth Magic Class with Magician Mike Della Penna
