Around the corner of 3rd and 22nd streets, now there are a number of stylish restaurants, shops and artists’ studios, all nested within renovated warehouses and former industrial buildings – making for a highly coveted neighborhood by San Francisco residents.

Formerly located on Sutter Street in the Downtown area, the Museum of Craft and Design reopened in its current Dogpatch location in 2013. The museum’s fully revamped building has a very contemporary appearance with its concrete and glass exterior. Inside, exposed ducts, pipes and bricks give the rugged feel of a creative workshop where real craftsmen, artists and designers live and breath.

A variety of different media and crafts are the main focus of the museum’s exhibitions. Works on display ingeniously crossover their creators’ sensibilities with skilled artistic techniques in a way that often surprise and inspire visitors. The museum offers workshops where artists and visitors interact to create sculptures and installations while programs that cater for children are also available.

The museum store has a range of original goods by the exhibiting artists on sale.
