People tend to check in during these times:
Good introduction to an important time in american literature. Is a bit small or low key, kind of a museum on a budget but if you're a fan of the beats or just curious about them I think worth it.
A museum dedicated to the Beat Generation, which grew right here in North Beach. A fantastic collection of Beat memorabilia that will take you back to this important time in literary history.
This place is full of treasures old and new, such as Allen’s typewriter, Jack’s jacket, and even the car used in the recent "On The Road" movie.
Home to a comprehensive collection of Beat memorabilia including Allen Ginsberg’s typewriter, Jack Kerouac’s plaid wool shirt, and a myriad of vintage copies of Beat literature.
I miss the big used bookstore that was here, but they still have a bathtub full of used mysteries -3 for $5
if u r in SF, this is a must to do
Always on the Road
Check out the rare signed books in foreign languages. Bukowski in Swedish!
ON THE ROAD and HOWL changed my life. A must for anyone who loves the Beat Generation and the literature, art, and music of that time. And if you haven't experienced yet. GO and by On The Road. :-)
It's a bit rinky dink & a little sad. But fun and interesting, Jack& Neil RIP.
I totally enjoyed this museum, was greeted as soon as I walked and everyone was so friendly offering lots of information. Really cool memorabilia and I had lots of fun looking at buying old records.
I loved the documentary! Spend two hours in the museum.
A little thin on relics for me.
Was never a huge Beat fan, but the tour is well worth it if one is interested in the literary and attendant social change in this movement. Fantastic!
Loved it here :D Make sure you get a Jack Kerouac shirt!
Um dos lugares que eu Mais quería conhecer em Frisco!!
