Located in San Francisco, the Museum of Performance + Design (MP+D) is the only independent, non-profit art organization in the United States devoted to the history
of the performing arts and theatrical design. 


Founded in 1947 by Russell Hartley, a dancer and designer with San Francisco Ballet, the organization was long known as the San Francisco Performing Arts Library & Museum (SFPALM) until it changed its name to Museum of Performance + Design in 2007. MP+D has served the arts community for over sixty-five years as a cultural resource and an archive for some of our nation's most important performance related materials.

It manages a rare collection of 3.5M items on the
history of performances in San Francisco and the Bay Area and hosts public programs onsite and online. MP+D recently moved from the Veterans Building in the Civic Center to a creative loft space in SOMA in the Yerba Buena Gardens neighborhood.
