The Bean Gilsdorf Living History Museum in San Francisco, California is the world’s smallest living history museum. It operated from June 2013 to August 2015 (currently on hiatus) 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, and was open by appointment three days per week, 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, pre-recorded MP3 walking tours of the Mission District, and a museum shop where visitors may purchase limited-edition souvenirs.
