September 3, 2018
Labor Day - Our Last Day Open
12:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Playland-Not-at-the-Beach is closing and Labor Day, 2018 is our last day we will be open. Unfortunately, like the original Playland at the Beach, we will be making room for housing. In this case it is apartments not condos. In another eerily similar repeat of history we are closing on Labor Day, as did our namesake park.

Come visit us for one last time before we close. Come say "goodbye" and experience a little bit of San Francisco history and enjoy the excitement at "Museum of Fun". Experience the 30+ pinball games, carnival skill games, dioramas celebrating Halloween and the Yuletide season, and miniature circuses, including the Marcks Family Miniature Circus one last time. The smiles you leave at Playland-Not-at-the-Beach will live on and be a lasting remembrance of our lost "Museum of Fun", Playland-Not-at-the-Beach.





We have commissioned Michaan's Auctions to liquidate Playland-Not-at-the-Beach. On Saturday, September 15, 2018, 10:00 am we will be auctioning our collection of, "circus nostalgia and prized memorabilia from 20th century American amusement parks including San Francisco's beloved Playland at the Beach."
There will be a preview of the auction items on the following days.
  • Thursday, September 13, noon - 5pm
  • Friday, September 14, noon - 5pm
  • The day of sale, beginning at 9am
