The GLBT History Museum reopening today after vandalism

SAN FRANCISCO – Vandals shattered two plate-glass windows early Monday at The GLBT History Museum in San Francisco’s Castro district, but apparently didn’t enter the building.

Undeterred, the museum plans to reopen today, Oct. 30, from 11 am to 7 pm.

“Visitors will see boarded-up windows for a few days, but that's not going to stop us. With your support, the museum will soon be back in top form!” officials posted on Facebook today.

Paul Boneberg, executive director of the GLBT Historical Society that runs the museum, said nothing appeared to be missing.

“We don't know who smashed the windows or why they did it,” he said.

Damage is estimated in the thousands of dollars, Boneberg said.

Museum officials set up a donation link and promised to report on repairs on its Facebook page.

The GLBT History Museum boasts that it maintains one of the largest archives of GLBT history in the United States.
