The Beat museum was one of the highlights of my visit to SF. Very nice, informative, you can tell that it was founded and is run by people who are knowledgeable and love the beat era. I also bought lots of their posters because they are really nicely done - high quality and nice art work. Go and visit - it is really worth it!!

I loved it! My grandfather was a minor and little-known beatnik poet, it was wonderful to read and learn more about that time period. The shop area had a sizable and nice selection of books and magazines, too. Well worth the small admission fee!

About The Beat Museum

By day, Jerry Cimino worked in the computer industry. By night, he quietly collected memorabilia from the Beat Generation, building up little piles of photographs, letters, and first editions of literature by Allen Ginsberg, Neal Cassady, and Jack Kerouac. Inspired by the beat poets themselves, who often traded what they had to pursue their passions, Cimino abandoned his 9-to-5 job and opened The Beat Museum. Located on the same ground that was once the epicenter for Beat activity during the 1950s, the museum hosts an ever-increasing collection of cultural ephemera and has been profiled in the Washington Post. The shelves and glass cases brim with various editions of Allen Ginsberg's Howl, a sweat-dappled jacket worn by Jack Kerouac on his travels, and William Burroughs’s guide to perfect table manners.
