Cable Car Museum

When the vintage cable cars turning around at Powell and Market pique your curiosity, grab a ride on one to Nob Hill and find the Cable Car Museum. Here, the entire history behind the San Francisco staple unfolds and the secrets of their inner-workings are revealed.

The museum is home to three antique cable cars from the 1870s, as well as displays of grips, track, cable, brake mechanisms and a vast collection of old photographs. The museum is in a cable car powerhouse, too, so guests can view the huge engines and winding wheels that make it possible for the cars to climb the city's steep streets.
