Hi everyone I've just checked in the official website and this museum is actually closed. Luckily the area is surrounded by other attractions: moscone center, jewish contemporary museum etc.

This museum is tiny - just one small room. I imagined it would be full of historic folk crafts, but when I was there, the exhibition was of contemporary paper art. The pieces were fine, but not at all what I had imagined and not worth going unless you are passing and have 15 minutes to kill. Think there are other galleries in the area where your time and money would be better spent (unless your thing is contemporary paper sculptures, in which case, this is for you)..

This seemingly is not a museum at all especially of what you would surely consider craft or folk art. It is one room with (when I was there) one artist who did very contemporary installation type art. Not craft or folk art at all. It was only $5 entrance fee which I considered a donation but didn't stay for more than five minutes as it was a huge disappointment.

It's only $5 but it should be free. It is what most people would consider a gallery, not a fee-for-entry museum. There is a small shop in front (with nothing special) that you can browse without paying. Then you pay, get a museum-type sticker, and enter the "museum" which is one small room with about 8 works by one local artist. That's it!

Don't waste your time. I only went because it was behind my hotel and free with my Go San Francisco Card. Normally the admission price is $5.00 (it may be free on Tuesdays). It took me less than 10 min. to go through the small museum and the only things on exhibit were ukuleles. They supposedly rotate the exhibit 3-4 times/year.
