Take a trip back to the 1930s just by heading to SoMa and visiting the California Historical Society’s A Wild Flight of the Imagination: the Story of the Golden Gate Bridge – a brand new historical exhibit honoring the bridge’s 75th anniversary.
Experience the story of the Bridge through an ambitious exhibition featuring rarely seen works of art, personal letters, photographs, and many artifacts that have never been shown to the public before.
