Our Collaborative Approach

The San Francisco Museum and Historical Society would not be able to preserve, interpret and present the extensive history of the San Francisco Bay Area without the help of our greater community. The Mint Project will partner with many other groups so that we can build a comprehensive resource for the Bay Area's rich cultural heritage. Success will require us to join together as individuals and as institutions that are similarly dedicated to celebrating segments of regional history and culture.

We look forward to working hand-in-hand with diverse community partners as we develop our unique exhibits and programs. We seek to develop an active peer-to-peer network throughout the region, establishing forums for sharing resources, artifacts, exhibit and programming plans, and evaluations. By working together, the Mint Project and its partners can deliver a satisfying and unique experience to each visitor that will strengthen the Bay Area's cultural community.

This collaborative approach builds on our Gateway strategy to become a starting point for discovering the many exciting cultural destinations, museums, landmarks, neighborhoods, and historic sites throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of our peers in the region's vast cultural network include:

Exploratorium Oakland Museum of California
The Tech Museum of Innovation Chinese Historical Society of America

Legion of Honor San Francisco History Center (at the public library)
