Submitted by the Event Organizer
Come to Treasure Island’s beautiful, historic, art deco Building One to see a fascinating photo and narrative exhibit portraying the history of San Francisco’s best kept island secret. Built from the mud of the Bay in 1937, the site of an unforgettable world’s fair in 1939-1940, and the west coast terminus for the China Clipper Flying boats from 1939-1945, Treasure Island abruptly became property of the US Navy at the beginning of World War II. Now, the island is preparing for return to the City of San Francisco.
“Portal to the Pacific: 70 years on Treasure Island” tells Treasure Island’s dynamic and colorful story through rarely-seen historic photographs and text.
This is an ongoing exhibit that is open Monday through Friday 8:30am and Saturdays 10am to 3pm. Please check out the museum’s website before your visit to check hours and availability as the exhibit is occasionally removed to accommodate other events.
