Visit Us This Weekend at the SF History Expo
March 1, 2013
Market Street Railway and the San Francisco Railway Museum invite you to visit us at the third annual San Francisco History Expo. This great event takes place Saturday, March 2 from 10-5 and Sunday, March 5, from 10-4, at the historic Old U.S. Mint at Fifth and Mission Streets, worth a visit by itself.
This amazing event, sponsored by the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society, brings together more than 40 local and neighborhood history groups in a mini-museum of San Francisco history. It’s a wonderful opportunity for people to learn about the city’s varied history through displays, presentations, photos, videos, fine art, music, children’s activities and historical re-enactments.
This year’s event is bigger and better than ever, with the added excitement of a raffle. Tickets will be available for purchase at the entrance and throughout the halls, and each exhibitor will offer an item of their choosing for raffle. Buying extra tickets will increase your chance to win that special something, and will help offset the expenses of holding the event.
Over the last two years more than 7,000 people have attended this one weekend only event, and viewed exhibits from the SF Museum Historical Society, Guardians of the City, Market Street Railway, LGBT Historical Society, SF History Association, Chinese Historical Society, The Western Neighborhoods Project, and many others. This year promises to be the best yet. Visit our booth and see transit artifacts and interesting items from our archives.museum
