Fodor's Review

The one-room Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) Historical Society Museum presents multimedia exhibits from its vast holdings covering San Francisco's queer history. You might hear the audiotape Harvey Milk made for the community in the event of his assassination, view an exhibit of prominent African Americans, gays, and lesbians in the city, or flip through a memory book with pictures and thoughts on some of the more than 20,000 San Franciscans lost to AIDS.

Though perhaps not for the faint of heart (those offended by sex toys and photos of lustily frolicking naked people may, well, be offended), the museum offers an inside look at these communities so integral to the fabric of San Francisco life.
