(A short walk from Union Square....FREE admission)
A visit to the Cable Car Museum in San Francisco is an enjoyable 30 minute education. The museum is just the sort of "hidden gem" that we, at Bradley Golf Travel, hope to share with our readers. Have you ever wondered how the little cars travel up and down the steep hills without any visible means of propulsion? This museum is the place to go to find out....
A self guided tour shows the history of the iconic San Francisco transportation system and teaches the visitor how the cars function. The museum is housed in the Washington-Mason powerhouse.
(you can see the working sheaves which drive and control the tension on the cables)
Then catch a ride on the cable car to experience the ride for yourself.
