Such a great place. Gives you and insight in how the cable car works. Great place to bring tourists. Also a great place for exploring your own city in the weekends. It is free but please donate so we can keep this open for the public.

Fantastic working museum. It's great to see how the cable car lines work and learn about the history. Plus it's free entry. Kids will especially love this place. It's fairly noisy inside with all the equipment that is in use but we'll worth a visit plus the cable car drops you right outside the door.

The cable car operation location that doubles as a museum. You can see the 4 runs of cables (Hyde, California, Mason and Powell) and wheels spinning that pull the every cable car roaming the streets of SF. The upper level has a gift shop, old cable cars on display, and a hallway with pictures documenting the history of cable cars in SF, including the earthquake in 1906 that basically marked the beginning of the end for the cable cars... as rebuilding effort shifted focus towards use of electric trolley. You can easily complete this museum in about 30-45min. Not a big museum by any definition, but certainly rich in history. And a great place to bring kids. There is a cable car stop right in front of the museum. So, makes easy for a full experience.

Great place to visit while you are in San Francisco. It is free. Very cool to see the power source for all of the cable cars and the history.

Absolutely fascinating! Not only do you last the history of the storied cable cars of San Francisco, you can actually watch the cables running through the pulleys and sheaves. And what better souvenir from the gift shop than a chunk of that very cable!

Nice little gem to visit. I mean, it's free and perfect for tourists. After riding on the trolley, come here to learn how it works: through underground cables! It's a good place to look around with bathrooms and a gift shop, they even have electric outlets (which I used to add a charge to my phone). Convenient location, a bit on the small side, but worth checking out, for sure!

This was a very interesting place and I'm so glad we made the trek from Chinatown to the museum. I had no idea how the whole cable car system worked and this place blew my mind. What a cool system. Best of all...it's free!

A must to visit! You accept visit SFR, you cannot take a cable car, if you don't spend also some time in this museum. It is free! And it is great, you can see how the cable cars actually works. There are also some good pictures of the city that documents the earthquake and the tools used in the past to do maintenance on the line. Inside also a nice souvenir shop.

A nice free museum in San Francisco that's suitable for the entire family. The men can enjoy the grease smell and the mechanics of the cable car engineering, the women can shop to their hearts delight in the gift shop, and the kids would be fascinated by the loud cable noises and the photo ops with the many actual working parts of the cable museum. This is what makes SF unique and we need more of these attractions to keep people coming to the Bay.

Interesting, free museum, especially if you were wondering when riding the cable car how all this work (especially when cable cars are crossing each other). This place will explain everything you need to know about the cable cars in SF. Highly recommended, not just for engineers. And outside of the museum (Jackson and Mason St) is plenty of photo opportunities.

This museum gives you a little history about the cable cars that trawled the streets of San Francisco back in the day. It also has the machinery and cable operating the present day cars....simple but effective It has the old style "What the Butler Saw" arcade machines showing how San Francisco dealt with the earthquakes as well as some old memorabilia. Museum is only small but free to enter so if you're anywhere near give it a go

The Admission: FREE!!! If you want to see cable cars... come to this block, there will be cable cars pass by every few minutes! This museum is very informative. Many display, video, photos and historic cable car inside the museum. The museum is not too big but definitely worth it to check it out.

This is a super fun place to take your kids in the city. They can learn all about the cable cars and the museum is free. Parking can be a little tricky but their is hospital parking the next street over and the guy who works there is really sweet. My son loved the underground look at the cables and they have a really cute gift shop.

We are so glad we stopped here during our visit to San Francisco. It was really an amazing place. You can see displays of antique cable cars, and get an understanding of how the cable cars work. It is also the powerhouse for the whole system so you see the actual cables that are moving and powering the cable cars. It is free too!
Toby Keen | juil. 16, 2018
An absolute treasure trove of historical paraphernalia. The prize, apart from the workings of the current cable system must be one of the original cable cars from the beginning of the system. Spend about an hour at this free museum. The cable cars are serviced and maintained here. Naturally two of the services run out front. Living history
Sarah McCarthy | juil. 18, 2018
If you enjoyed riding the cable cars and want to see how they work then this is a must. It's free and you only need fifteen minutes to walk around, read about them and watch the cables. A great addition to your learning about San Fran history.
