    Travelers passing through San Francisco International Airport Tuesday will get to experience the brand new Harvey Milk Terminal.

    The $2.4 billion terminal is named after former San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, who was the first openly gay elected official in California.

    "When I first walked through, my impression was, 'Wow!'" traveler Brian Martins said. "I was not expecting to see the museum-like feel walking through there. Being a history teacher, I was pretty impressed in what I saw. And it was very calming to walk out of the plane into that setting."

    During a celebration this past weekend, the terminal's nine gates, better passenger flow and new concessions were showed off. The terminal will eventually feature 25 gates when its fully operational in 2023.
