The Bean Gilsdorf Living History Museum in San Francisco, California was the world’s smallest living history museum. It operated from June 2013 to August 2015 as a site where visitors may sense the immediacy of the past and interpret the life of Bean Gilsdorf and the origins of her work as an artist on the West Coast of America. The BGLHM provides an authoritative impression of the lived experience of Bean Gilsdorf, offering complete information on the artworks in our collection, printable lesson plans for K-12 teachers that conform to the California Visual Arts Curriculum Framework Learning Standards, and pre-recorded MP3 walking tours of the Mission District.
