Visiting the Museum

A visit to the museum and island can be well worth your while.


We offer an unattended history exhibition in the lobby of the landmark Building One, and rotating exhibits in the small gallery off the lobby. These are normally open weekdays from 8:30 am to 5 pm (closed holidays), and during our monthly Saturday lectures. We close for occasional special events.


Always on view are six statues from the world's fair just outside the building, with linked online content, and four historical displays around Yerba Buena Island.

The lobby of the Art Moderne Building One features a Lowell Nesbitt sea services mural from the Bicentennial.  The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.

We can accommodate a limited number of groups with tours of the museum and historic area.

See our At TIM pages for more details, and check our calendar before coming. The museum is free.

Around the Island

There is plenty to do elsewhere on the island. Check out one of the wineries or take a class at the sailing school.

And many come to Treasure Island just for the view of San Francisco, the bridges and the bay.

Construction Notice


Parking for the museum is available in front of Building One. Due to the construction, the entrance may not be obvious but it is there.

As redevelopment of the islands progresses, the museum will remain open and accessible. But street, parking and transit patterns will be in flux for the next few years.  Be alert and observe signage when arriving, and check TIDA's construction information page beforehand.
