  • This place was a real winner. There are not a lot of everyday free museums in San Fran and the few i saw needed no longer than 10-15 mins to tour and be done, the WF museum was different. Though not l...  more »
  • Free Museum and frankly not bad. He is very playful and more opportunity to take pictures and print the photo for free. No translation into french, everything is in English.

  • This is a fabulous little museum for all ages. It should not take more than about 45 minutes to get through the entire museum and it will be the best 45 minutes of your SF visit. Loved the artifacts a...  more »

  • This gets 5-stars on the basis that it's 100% free and actually really well done. If you're visiting and have a time slot you want to fill, pop your head in here. It won't cost you anything to realise it's not your thing so why not! It's not enormous and you'll get through the various displays in around an hour (assuming you actually read and interact with it all) but it's quite fascinating to learn the history of the business and how courier businesses ran back in the day. Some have noted that it's heavily branded but it's also in the banks lobby so they're not exactly being sneaky about anything. It's not like they're obnoxious about it either and it didn't bother me at all.
  • Awsome historical exhibition, with lots of great facts and fun stuff. Must see, even if you're not a WF customer.
  • Came here on a school field trip with my son. I was impressed with the amount to of things kids can learn there, especially older methods of travel and communications, such as stagecoach and telegraph. You can pick up and use some of them to get experience what it was like. We had a guided tour for the field trip so that was very nice. It's directly connected to their main branch. Best of all, the museum is free to come in and browse. They are closed on the weekend though so plan accordingly.
  • It's free and very educative. Recommend everyone to stop by.
  • I found this by accident just wandering around taking photos. Such a nice surprise and free! Free is good. There is a great display of money and coinage from many different banks back when they all printed their own. Scales gold was weighed on and lots of photos. A Stagecoach display to get into and try and imagine how in the world 9 people would ever fit in there and spend days traveling together! Push a button and there is the Stagecoach driver telling you what to expect and scenery going past the window. If you sit in the driver's seat there are different videos showing and telling you how the Horses are driven, harnessed and otherwise controlled and directed by the driver. This place is only a few blocks from Montgomery street BART right on Montgomery. Well worth dropping in to spend a little time
