SF Maritime Museum

Today I rode the N-Judah to the Embarcadero, and walked across to the Ferry building to catch one of the vintage streetcars on the 'F' Line to get to Fishermans Wharf. From the end of the 'F' line I walked 3 blocks to the Maritime Museum at Polk and Beach street. The museum is in a streamlined Art Deco building overlooking Aquatic Park. From there I walked up to North Point, and took the 47 Bus down Van Ness Avenue to Market Street, where I got back on the N-Judah for the trip home. Public transportation is great!

The museum is small but free, and worth the visit if you're in the area. They have some great panoramic photos of SF in 1851, and lots of information on sailing ships.
