Automobile Museum


 

Former Academy of Art University President Richard A. Stephens has always had a penchant for cars–a passion passed down to his daughter and current President Dr. Elisa Stephens. Wanting to offer industrial design students unparalleled reference material, the auto museum hosts a wealth of beautifully crafted historical automobiles right in our industrial design building.

The museum is open to the public, and we invite you to come by and experience automotive history for yourself.

All proceeds from admission will benefit the Rotary Club and the Boys & Girls Club.

Chapel

Visit our chapel at the St. Brigid building, an official landmark in San Francisco. Painstakingly restored and seismically upgraded, the building features ornate interiors with extensive stained glass windows by famed artist Harry Clarke, a pipe organ, and soaring ceilings.

The chapel at St. Brigid is open for community uses, public assemblies, and memorials, and AAU alumni may request its use for wedding ceremonies. Used for lectures, meetings, presentations, and class sessions, it's truly a sight to behold.

Stop by and experience this historic landmark and piece of San Francisco history today.
