  • 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 »

  • It is an interesting place for adults, and lots of fun for kids. The woman working there when I visited was super nice and very helpful. I highly recommend a visit. On top of all that, it's free!
  • A free museum showing the history of Wells Fargo (and banking industry in US) not a very large museum but with lots of interactive activities. Nice one, worth a visit if you are nearby.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful set of interactive exhibits, much more about the gold rush than banking. A lot of fun to see!
  • It's free and well worth a visit. Try the free photo booths and buy some gold.
