The whole experience is somewhat difficult to understand when one contrasts this place against every other museum you have ever experienced. You have to reserved in advance and when you arrive the location is practically unmarked. You push a button to be buzzed in through...More
The reservations for this treasure of a photography exhibit on-line is easy and free. You cannot see the exhibits without reserving a time slot on a specific day (closed Saturdays and Sundays). You must exit after your 2 hour time slot and we were there...More
Via the web, be sure to make an advance, free reservation to visit Pier 24 (either before traveling to San Francisco or if a local, prior to your visit). This very special space offers rotating photo exhibitions that change 3 to 4 times a year....More
This truly is a special exhibition for anyone with an interest in photography.The staff were knowledgeable and very approachable. The limit on numbers of visitors makes for a very personal experience but please don't think this visit is elitist.The photos may be technically brilliant and...More
The space is large enough to present the works of several serious or well-known photographers at the same time, but limited enough to keep it within a 1-2 hours visit. And do note, they limit entry to pre-booked visits only, so book online in advance!...More
I have seen some excellent photography here. It is a large space and there is a large stylistic variety of photography on display. You do have to book your visit in advance but once on list you will be notified of new and upcoming exhibitions.
Finally a more than decent space dedicated to vintage and contemporary photography. The venue is great. The reservation only policy for about 20 people at a time makes every visit almost like a private tour. And it is free!

The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
