Things to do: Tenderloin Museum

Despite all of the negative publicity the Tenderloin District receives, its museum is a must-see for San Franciscans, 7x7 reports.

Constructed in 2015, the Tenderloin Museum's permanent collection showcases more than 100 years of history on urban construction, entertainment and political and social activism in interactive exhibitions.

Uptown Tenderloin Inc. operates the museum. The nonprofit has made strides to turn the Tenderloin into a national historic district — installing nearly 100 historic plaques and nine “lost landmark” plaques around the neighborhood. They host dozens of walking tours each year.

Tenderloin Museum is located at 398 Eddy St. and is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday.
