Step aside MOMA and de Young, there’s a new museum in town. The country’s first GLBT History Museum. Located at 4127 18th Street in the Castro it is run by The GLBT Historical Society and currently has two exhibits – “Our Vast Queer Past: Celebrating GLBT History” and “Great Collections of the GLBT Historical Society Archives”.

According to SFist, “The new museum has two debut exhibits: “Our Vast Queer Past: Celebrating GLBT History,” curated by historians Gerard Koskovich, Don Romesburg and Amy Sueyoshi (which features everything from sex toys to a bit about “Lesbian Sex Wars”; and in the front gallery, “Great Collections of the GLBT Historical Society Archives.” Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The Society has taken out a five-year lease on the 1600-square-foot storefront.”
