San Francisco's GLBT History Museum
Posted by:  Gerard Koskovich

At 1,600 square feet (150 square meters), The GLBT History Museum is fairly small, but it packs a punch, celebrating 100 years of the San Francisco's vast queer past through dynamic exhibitions and programming. Among the objects on display are personal belongings of Harvey Milk; the pantsuits worn by pioneering lesbian activists Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon to their 2008 wedding; a Laura Linney costume from the 1993 "Tales of the City" PBS miniseries; and photos, documents and artifacts telling the surprising stories of a century of everyday queer life among the diverse populations of San Francisco. Multimedia exhibits include historic film, video and audio. The museum is open Monday and Wednesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.; Sunday, noon – 5 p.m.; closed Tuesday. General admission is U.S. $5.00; admission for California students with ID is $3.00; free for members; free to all visitors on the first Wednesday of each month (courtesy of the Bob Ross Foundation). Launched in January 2011, the museum is a project of the GLBT Historical Society, a San Francisco institution founded in 1985 that houses one of the world's largest collections of GLBT archival materials.
