Coit Tower Murals

Neighborhood: Telegraph Hill


Discover how Californians lived, worked and played in the 1930s, rendered in an evocative style that’s inspired artists for decades. Climb the stairs to see murals not usually open to the public. See the tower funded by local legend Lillie Coit and hear about how her love for San Francisco manifested in a massive donation to beautify the city. Learn about the passionate “rounds man” who took care of the tower for so many years. Splendid art and rich history — what more could you ask for?
