  • This museum is a little gem tucked into the Castro. Beautiful exhibits. It's small, so don't plan for more than an hour. And there are no restrooms. But it's really an important space and everyone should visit.
  • Small but fantastic... donate to help it build a new bigger museum
  • Walk through and learn some of our history. Much to learn here.
  • Small museum. Pretty much one medium-large room. Probably about 20-60 mins worth of time to view (depending on how in depth you like to look). Good quality of material, but it could use a little maintenance.
  • No trans people, expect 1 tgirl mention and two transmen called lesbians, more like gbl museum.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
