Monthly programs feature multimedia presentations given by historians who have a passion for a particular subject in the history of San Francisco. They are usually held at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday evening of each month, except for August and December. Programs are preceded by a reception at 7:00pm.
Walking tours are a great way to learn more about your own neighborhood or to explore new parts of San Francisco. Some tours are given by SFMHS volunteer docents; these tours are generally free of charge. Other tours are given in conjunction with San Francisco City Guides, and require advance reservations and payment of $15 per person.
SFMHS also offers guided tours of each of the four sections of the Barbary Coast Trail®. These tours, listed here, are free for SFMHS members and $15 per person for non-members. Advance reservations are required.
Each year, the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society honors individuals, organizations, and businesses that have made important contributions to the legacy of San Francisco.
