Lectures start at 10:30 am in the lobby of Building One, and are free of charge. Treasure Island can be reached by public bus, car or bicycle.

These ongoing talks on the past, present and future of Treasure Island cover topics including Treasure and Yerba Buena Island history, San Francisco world’s fairs, naval history, current island activities and redevelopment, island sustainability, the Golden Gate International Exposition, and art and architecture on Treasure Island.


Construction Notice:  As redevelopment progresses, street and transit access and parking will be in flux. Here are current directions, but they will change from time to time.

Driving, as you approach Building One don't turn right at the detour sign, but go straight past the sign into the parking lot. The Muni 25 stop has been reinstated on Clipper Cove Way across from Building One (inbound) and on Treasure Island Road at the Clipper Cove Way intersection (outbound to San Francisco).

See the Directions page for maps and directions to the safer new westbound Bay Bridge on-ramp.

The “Little Island, Big Ideas” lecture series is presented with support from the Treasure Island Development Authority and funding from the Historic Preservation Fund of the City and County of San Francisco, Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
