The Theater at Children's Creativity Museum

+ Google Map
221 4th Street
San Francisco, CA 94103 United States

The Children’s Creativity Museum is undergoing heavy construction, and the entrance at 4th and Howard is currently blocked. The Theater is accessible by an elevator on Folsom at Mabini St. We recommend navigating directions to 750 Folsom Street, which will take you to the elevator. There is also an elevator on the other side of Howard Street. From the second level of that elevator, the bridge leads to the theater.
For more accessibility information, please click here.
Download this map we made to help you smoothly navigate the construction site.
