MCD Parklet opens, considered “the benchmark of Parklets” by SF Planning Department. MCD’s website, sfmcd.org, gets a new look and feel!
Our new home is at 2569 Third Street in the American Industrial Center and opened to the public in April 2013. Our new location allows us to expand our exhibition space and to build our first-ever dedicated space for public programming, including our popular MakeArt workshops.
In February 2012, MCD announces a move to the historic Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco.
In the fall of 2010, MCD launches the first of a series of pop-up museums—exhibitions, educational programs, and retail store—in temporary locations throughout San Francisco while searching for a building to purchase as a permanent home.
The Museum of Craft and Design opened on Sutter Street, in San Francisco’s Union Square District, as the San Francisco Museum of Craft+Design.
