Beat Musem Gift Shop Tickets

It was in the heart of San Francisco at the Six Gallery on October 7th, 1955 that Allen Ginsberg's first read Howl and from that moment on the Beats would become known as a significant cultural influence that would challenge and ultimately change the world.

At San Francisco's Museum dedicated to the Beat Movement, your Go San Francisco Card not only entitles you to FREE admission, but also provides you with 10% savings in the gift shop on non-sale items.

So check out the Beat Museum which takes you from the arrest of Lawrence Ferlinghetti and subsequent Howl trial to the publication of On the Road by Jack Kerouac. The Beat Museum allows you to step back in time to where it all began.

Explore the influence of the Russian satellite Sputnik, the Beat Generation's Women Writers, gay rights, environmentalism, and more. You'll see first editions, autographs, original artifacts, plus watch movies in the theater room.
