Future Home in Yerba Buena Gardens

A Unique Partnership

A unique partnership with the City and County of San Francisco through the Successor Agency, formerly the Redevelopment Agency, Millennium Partners and with support from the California Cultural and Historical Endowment (CCHE).

The Mexican Museum stands on the threshold of a dramatic transformation. It will soon have a permanent home at 706 Mission Street at Third and Mission Streets, in the heart of the Yerba Buena Arts District.



In partnership with the City and County of San Francisco, the Successor Agency and Millennium Partners, The Mexican Museum is in the pre-development phase for a new permanent home at Yerba Buena Gardens.

Millennium Partners will deliver the core and shell space to the museum at no cost to the city, other public entity or to The Mexican Museum, at an estimated value of approximately $18 - 22 million including pre-development planning.

The museum’s home will feature approximately 52,000 net square feet including galleries designated for presentation of the permanent collection, changing exhibitions, an educational center, La Tienda - the museum store, and a restaurant.

Millennium Partners will provide The Mexican Museum with a $5 million operating endowment.

Millennium Partners is pleased to partner with The Mexican Museum to realize its long-standing dream to establish a permanent home for its outstanding collection. This project truly completes the vision for a significant cultural institution on Jessie Square Plaza, and the Yerba Buena Arts and Cultural District, a world-class cultural destination.
