Wells Fargo museum to reopen after theft of gold nuggets

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A popular history museum in the heart of San Francisco's financial district is reopening weeks after thieves smashed a stolen vehicle through its front door and made off with historic gold nuggets on display.

Thieves last month rammed an SUV through the Wells Fargo museum's revolving door. One man held a security guard at gunpoint while two others took gold nuggets worth an estimated $10,000 from a display case. The nuggets have not been recovered. No arrests have been made.

Community and civic leaders, Wells Fargo customers, and employees will gather Thursday morning to mark the reopening. 

They will also have a program to celebrate the unveiling of an exhibit that tells the story of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition and Wells Fargo's role in it. It's one of many events in San Francisco marking 100 years since the fair.
