It’s appropriate that the second largest bank in the world by market value have its own museum centres in various towns. This San Francisco one has hosted interesting exhibits. For example, the 2015 special exhibit tells of the bank’s role in the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exhibition. Artefacts, maps, illustrations and images from the exhibition were showcased at the museum. Exhibitions change over time, so keep checking the museum website for updates.

Wells Fargo History Museum Reviews & Ratings
This was an accidental find that we thoroughly enjoyed. The best part was it is FREE, which was great with how much we were spending on our sightseeing around San Francisco. You don't need much time here. Maybe an hour or so to fully take in all the historical items. It really is worth the visit here. Located in the heart of the financial district, it is easy to get to, so you can make it an easy side trip on your sightseeing itinerary. There are some cute photo opportunities and two photo booths as well that will email you your funny memorable shots. I would say this is fun for all ages and historically very educational that isn't boring. It is worth the side trip and I would say a hidden gem that is a must see.
Informative and nice little museum in the heart of San Francisco's financial district. Learnt quite a bit about the history of Wells Fargo at this museum.
A small and free museum that introduces you to the historical times in the rise of the California and in turns most of the American banking and investment industry. The story and the artifacts are indeed very much of an advertisement of the company that the museum is named after but so what. As a newcomer into this country, I never knew much about the history of the gold rush, not even mention the role of this company in that history! Nice touch with taking your picture and sending it to the email.
An amazing place to visit and know about the history and culture of Wells Fargo Bank and to actually touch and feel some of the history making equipment which was used. Don't forget to take pictures on the stage coach and collect a few memories to include yourself
Nice little museum with three stagecoaches to look at. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a great place to discover not just Wells Fargo history but San Francisco history and banking history. Well worth the trip. Best done by public transportation - between California and Sacramento Streets.
