SAN FRANCISCO VISITORS REGISTER 

   Dave Lange writes: "Until I moved to New Jersey in 1994, I 
   lived in San Bruno within a mile of the Pacific Region Archives. 
   One would think that I'd have taken the time to visit there 
   looking for records of the SF Mint, but of course I didn't.  I 
   suppose that's the same mentality that precluded my seeing 
   Yosemite while I lived in California.  I'm now doing my very 
   best to avoid taking advantage of New York's many museums 
   and tourist attractions. I suppose that's the price we pay for 
   spending so much time reading! 

   A web search turned up this entry at the Oakland Museum 
   of California: 

   Anyone contemplating a visit to San Francisco should absolutely 
   include a day at the Oakland Museum, just across the bay. In 
   addition to its fine art collection, this is the real repository of 
   California's history, far more so than any museum in SF. One 
   is able to go from room to room with dioramas and artifacts 
   illustrating the social and economic history of the state from 
   native times to the present. The Oakland Museum also has a 
   pretty good bookstore."
