  • Our 60's politics, art, music, and social change were brought to life. Well worth the trip.
  • Looks a bit like an addendum to a normal shop, separated by fraying curtains and a beat-up old movie theatre. That said - definitely worth a visit, unique artifacts, the video in the back was pretty interesting, some beat poetry readings. Spirit of the place is very San Francisco, and the older guy working the counter was super excited to have us visit.
  • Very small but not too expensive and pretty informative
  • Awesome place to visit if your in town.
  • Cool little spot in North Beach for books, vinyl, and so much more! I frequent here just to dig for vinyl. Overpriced but still great because there's nothing else around there anything like it!
