This pop-up exhibition showcases art and objects from the historic Sutro Baths, Cliff House and Sutro Heights, as well as works from local artists and child-friendly interactives. Objects from ancient Egypt collected by Adolph Sutro, now stewarded by the Global Museum on behalf of San Francisco State University, are displayed alongside other pieces from the Western Neighborhoods Project and Golden Gate National Recreation Area collections — reunited at the original site of the Sutro Baths “Museum of the World” for the first time since their removal in 1966. Hours: Thursdays – Sundays, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Free.
