The Museum of Craft and Design is located at 2569 Third Street (between 22nd and 23rd), in the historic American Industrial Center in San Francisco’s vibrant Dogpatch neighborhood. The T Third Muni Metro and the 48 bus stop are within one block of the Museum. Please double-check all current bus and transit schedules.

Temporary directions for those coming from the East Bay or within San Francisco: From Embarcadero Station, exit at Market/Spear streets out of BART onto the street. Once at Market/Spear, turn the corner to take the T Inbound shuttle that is replacing the T Sunnydale streetcar at this time during the construction at UCSF/Mission Bay stops through March. Once on the shuttle, stop at 23rd Street station, and walk to 2569 Third Street.

Parking: Finding street parking in the neighborhoods and industrial areas around the Museum can sometimes be a challenge. There is a paid lot at 20th Street and Illinois Street.
