-Where is The Beat Museum?

Where else but the home of the Beats North Beach San Francisco! The Beat
Museum used to be located on the California Coast between San Francisco and
Big Sur, in Monterey California. That was a great location but the birth
place of the beats had a stronger pull and we have recently relocated there.
Please come and see our new location it is really great!
