information about Natural History Museum
A Temporary Home, 875 Howard Street, San Francisco
During the rebuilding of the Academy at its permanent site in Golden Gate Park, the museum has relocated to a temporary home so that construction can be completed faster, more efficiently, and safely for visitors, staff, animals, and research collections. The temporary museum allows the Academy to continue serving visitors during the construction phase.
Located in downtown San Francisco at 875 Howard Street, the temporary Academy brings the natural world to the heart of an urban setting. Among the public exhibitions are the Steinhart Aquarium and a Naturalist Center that enable visitors to engage in hands-on scientific activities. A monumental feat, more than 18 million natural history specimens from the Academy's scientific collections were transported to the temporary space for study by scientists.
