  • This was an accidental find that we thoroughly enjoyed. The best part was it is FREE, which was great with how much we were spending on our sightseeing around San Francisco. You don't need much time here. Maybe an hour or so to fully take in all the historical items. It really is worth the visit here. Located in the heart of the financial district, it is easy to get to, so you can make it an easy side trip on your sightseeing itinerary. There are some cute photo opportunities and two photo booths as well that will email you your funny memorable shots. I would say this is fun for all ages and historically very educational that isn't boring. It is worth the side trip and I would say a hidden gem that is a must see.
  • A small and free museum that introduces you to the historical times in the rise of the California and in turns most of the American banking and investment industry. The story and the artifacts are indeed very much of an advertisement of the company that the museum is named after but so what. As a newcomer into this country, I never knew much about the history of the gold rush, not even mention the role of this company in that history! Nice touch with taking your picture and sending it to the email.
  • An amazing place to visit and know about the history and culture of Wells Fargo Bank and to actually touch and feel some of the history making equipment which was used. Don't forget to take pictures on the stage coach and collect a few memories to include yourself
  • Nice little museum with three stagecoaches to look at. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a great place to discover not just Wells Fargo history but San Francisco history and banking history. Well worth the trip. Best done by public transportation - between California and Sacramento Streets.
  • This place is small but full of interesting exhibits. Probably more suited to children but I still enjoyed it. It’s also free.
