In celebration, the lovely folks at CreativeBug have put together this great video with an inside look at the neighborhood, the inaugural exhibits, and the history of the location.

The Museum of Craft and Design reopens on Saturday, April 6th at 2569 Third Street in San Francisco’s Dogpatch district.

Furthering the Museum’s ability to serve as an international center for arts and culture, the Museum of Craft and Design’s new facility expands the institution’s exhibition space by nearly 50% and features the museum’s first dedicated educational workshop and programming space. A non-collecting institution, the Museum of Craft and Design is one of North America’s few institutions dedicated to contemporary practices in craft and design. Exploring the active roles craft and design play in everyday life, the Museum will originate exhibitions, host traveling exhibitions, continue to present pop-ups exhibitions and collaborate with museums from around the world to present outstanding works of craft and design.

For more information on the opening, exhibits, and how to visit, check out the Museum of Craft and Design’s website.
