Candlestick Park gets new perks, including 49ers Museum, for 2011 season 

49er fans attending the team’s preseason home opener at Candlestick Park on Saturday will notice some new features at the ancient stadium.

The most prominent of the new additions is a 49ers Museum, located in the stadium’s Grand Plaza. Inside the museum, which is free to enter, fans can check out the team’s five Super Bowl rings, a timeline of the franchise’s many high points, and a display of the 49er helmet over the years.

Other new amenities at the Grand Plaza include a women’s-only merchandise store, an outdoor sports bar, and a kid zone with an inflatable games. The team will also employ a new Incident Management System for home games, which is designed to allow security teams to respond immediately to incidents in the stands.

After getting trounced in their preseason opener 24-3 by the Saints, the 49ers will hope to even up their exhibition record on Saturday against cross-Bay rivals the Raiders.
