Life changed for the San Francisco Bay Area at 5:12 a.m., April 18, 1906. One hundred years later, the devastating earthquake is commemorated in Aftershock! Through vignettes and individual stories, the exhibition conveys how people withstood and rebounded from the disaster that has reverberated through Bay Area history. Adding to the museum’s impressive collection of photos and artifacts is a re-created Victorian house where, through a simulated experience, visitors can feel the pitch and roll and hear the rumble of an earthquake.
