Cable Car Museum
The Cable Car Museum is a museum, situated in San Francisco, California. It contains historical and explanatory exhibits on the San Francisco cable car system, which can itself be regarded as a working museum.
The museum is entered from an entrance at Washington and Mason. The museum contains several examples of old cable cars, together with smaller exhibits and a shop. Perhaps of more interest are two overlook galleries which allow the visitor to overlook both the main power house, and also to descend below the junction of Washington and Mason streets in order to view the large cavern where the haulage cables are routed out to the street.
