Cable Car Museum

Cable Car Museum review Rate it

The sight most often associated with San Francisco is its cable cars. The best way to study them is to ride one, but at this entertaining museum you can find out how the cars work, as well as view the cable-winding machinery that actually powers them. You'll also learn about emergency procedures, bell-ringing competitions and the workmanship that goes into each car. Vintage cable cars, associated artefacts and dozens of old photos complete matters.
