The museum is temporarily closed to the public as part of SF State's efforts to prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, visitors and the community at large.



The Global Museum welcomes visitors of all ages, from students to lifelong learners, to connect with our collections and be part of our dialogue on culture and community.

Visits to our exhibition gallery are self-guided, although guided tours can be arranged by request. Engagement Specialists are stationed in the exhibit gallery to engage our visitors and answer questions.

The Global Museum welcomes K-12 school groups for guided field trips. View our field trip postcard for more information!

For future field trip or tour inquiries, please email
