  • Free place to check out. You can smell the oil walking around inside. Gift shop is pretty cool to see too. The machinery, thick heavy cables that pull the still active trolleys through SF is pretty amazing. Learning, seeing, reading about the history on the walls or their videos, sitting in a trolley there, feeling the weight of a hand sized length of real cable... It's pretty impressive! Donations appreciated. There's a box on the top floor.

  • The SF cable cars are one of the greatest parts of this city. They are fun and were instrumental in the development of the city for over a century. The Cable Car Museum is free and explains how the city developed and expanded. It is also very cool to be able to see the machinery that makes the cable system work. If you're in Chinatown or on the top of Nob Hill, it is pretty close so check it out !

  • The cable cars are hard to explain to friends visiting San Francisco, especially tourists that have never been on a bus, let alone a cable car. You would be surprised to see how many people visiting the City by the Bay have never been on a subway, bus, train, or cable car. Taking your friends to the cable car museum is a grand experience in ingenuity, gravity, and they will carry the knowledge forever especially when they go back home to explain to their friends the true dynamics of the amazing cable cars that ride people throughout San Francisco. Your friends will remember the experience of learning in the cable car museum every time they think of their visit with you in San Francisco.

  • I love this place! Cable cars are awesome and this place gives them the respect they deserve. Everybody should stop here! It was busy but the staff was still kind to me. I had all my questions answered and had a really good time.

  • It's free. It's fascinating. I never knew how the cable cars worked until now. You see the wire ropes that pull all the cars in San Francisco and they all go through this building. Definitely a must. Then when you leave pop across the road to the coffee shop for the best coffee and the cheapest.
