After World War II, the Beat Generation authors (Herbert Huncke, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, Lucien Carr, and Jack Kerouac) were an incredibly influential bunch of intellectuals. Novels revolutionised the USA culturally and spiritually. Back in the 1950s, San Francisco was their main stomping ground. This small museum exhibits memorabilia, photographs, and first edition books from that age. There’s a small documentary on continuous loop. The main exhibit here though, is a banged up looking car, the 1949 Hudson used in the Jack Kerouac novel ‘On The Road’.
