San Francisco is home to the only remaining manual cable car system in the world. While many tourists ride the cable cars, a visit to the Cable Car Museum is an interesting way to truly understand the history and evolution of this San Francisco icon. The museum is housed in the historic Washington/Mason cable car barn and powerhouse. Here one can see the massive engines and wheels as they operate the cables. The display includes various mechanical devices, detailed models and several photographs. The highlights are the three antique cable cars from the 1800s. One can also visit the gift shop for some souvenirs and memorabilia. San Francisco Cable Car Museum tourist attraction added in 3 Day San Francisco Trip Itinerary

Very nice. It explains how the cable cars work, the history around it and you can actually see the whole system in place, working and pulling the cars. There is also an explanation movie where you can see the exact behind the scenes work. Its small and can be seen in 30 min or less, so dont miss it.
This museum is tucked in the back of the Presidia among the red brick buildings. There's a simple sign out front and it's easy to miss, but once inside, you've arrived at a wonderful interactive look into the life of Walt Disney. Even if you're not a huge Disney fan, this museum is great for anyone interested in history or technology as it covers not only Walt's life story, but gives you a glimpse into the modernization of the motion picture industry. You travel decade by decade through his life and gain an appreciation for all the work that went into making movies in the first half of the 20th century. There are photos and artifacts from his life as well as Disney memorabilia. Lots of interactive exhibits allow you to hear Walt's stories through his own words. You can end your day in the gift shop or cafe.
This place might be small, but I'd consider it a charming local gem! Cable cars, history, and the system that pulls them! Oh my! I'd recommend this place to those who are transit/cable car enthusiasts, or just want to see/learn about the system.
I thought this was one of the most interesting places in the city, but go there by cable car to get the full experience. Great photos of the 1901 earthquake...to tell you to visit the city but not live there.
Interesting little museum that explains the rich history of the cable car system. In the basement you can see the current system working. You HAVE to go there by cable car of course! :)
