What to Expect at This Event

Explore 10,000 years of Presidio history with exhibitions that bring its complex stories to life.

The Presidio Officers’ Club is the backdrop for the Presidio History Exhibition, that tells the Presidio story from its earliest indigenous history to its conversion from military post to national park site. Rotating exhibitions focus on an aspect of the Presidio story. Currently on view is EXCLUSION: The Presidio’s Role in World War II Japanese American Incarceration.

Open Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free with no ticket required. Volunteers are on hand to support your visit.

Mesa Room – Within These Walls

Start your visit in the Presidio’s oldest standing architecture. See layers of history literally revealed, from the exposed colonial adobe walls of the 1810s to the Post Headquarters of the 1880s and the Officers’ Club of the 1930s and 1970s. Together, the layered walls of the Mesa Room represent the Presidio’s transformation through time and show the process of historical discovery and preservation still unfolding today.

A Presidio volunteer explains Mesa Room exhibits to a group of visitors.

Passage Way – Beyond the Gates

Traveling from the historic adobe Mesa Room to the main exhibitions in the Heritage Gallery, explore the impact the Presidio had on the history of the American West and on events around the world, and learn about the generations of soldiers who passed through the post. The images and objects illustrate these global connections and tell the story of the Presidio beyond its gates.
