This is my second time to the museum. The first time was probably 25 years ago. I really couldn’t remember much since it was so long ago, so really enjoyed getting to go through it again. It is a free museum which is really appreciated with how expensive everything is in San Francisco. When you enter, go up the stairs on the right to the main section of the museum and look down to view the spinning cables for all three of the current lines. To the left of that is a container for donations. Please help the museum continue to be free for all by making an optional donation (there is no pressure to make one by museum staff). We really enjoyed doing a quick walk around the museum, reading the history, and seeing all the vintage equipment. I’m not sure how long we were there but it was probably less than an hour as the museum is really small. After viewing the top floor and gift shop, the bottom floor is where you can see the sheave. It’s a really interesting museum for history buffs and those that like vintage items. Be sure to check hours online before you go as they are slightly different from April 1 through September 30 and October 1 through March 31. They are open every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day.
