This is a big attraction - visitor center, a maritime museum in a historical bath-house, library/research facility, and a whole fleet of impressive historic ships await you.
The Visitor Centre is the quickest stop and should be your first. It’s exhibits tell the fascinating story of San Francisco’s rich maritime heritage. Then, move along the Aquatic Park Bathhouse Building, which has now been converted into a museum. The beautiful mural on the wall complement the exhibits - the maritime technological evolution from wind to steam on the first floor, maritime artefacts on the second floor, and visiting exhibitions on the third floor.
You can also sail on the historic Scow Schooner ALMA, the last ship of her kind. The park ranger on tour duty will narrate enough stories to fill a book.
