Always wanted to visit this museum. When you walk in, there are murals on all the walls by Hilare Hiler. Off the right is the stern of the Niantic. Upstairs is a replica of a radio operator room. Definitely, venture here.
The building is is interesting from the outside in that it was designed to look like a ship but that is about it. There are very few exhibits inside with just a few historical photo displays. The building was almost torn down and it seems...More
We grabbed a few groupons online ($20) then headed here on a very rainy Saturday. All the exhibits were very well presented and clean. The underwater walkway was a bit hit and the informal talk very interesting. We spent about 90minutes here.

This is a very small museum with not much to see. We spent 5 minutes here and left. Just as well that entry is free. We spent a bit more time walking around the Aquatic Park before going to Fisherman's Wharf.
Packed with family-friendly entertainment, quality hotels, and good food, there’s something for everyone at Fisherman’s Wharf. From street performers and historic cable cars to art galleries and museums, a postcard-worthy photo is available on every corner. Bring your appetite: seafood lovers will be rewarded with Dungeness crab and sourdough bread bowls, while Ghirardelli Square will satiate anyone’s sweet tooth
after a day at Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Don't forget to say hello to the adorable sea lions that make this neighbourhood a true San Francisco treat.
