San Francisco has a plethora of museums, both large and small. Yesterday was the day for us to incorporate a City walk, a preview of several condos along the Van Ness corridor, lunch at the Buena Vista, and a visit to one of the smaller museums.
The Maritime Museum at Aquatic Park is operated by the National Park Service, and is open to the public free of charge (donations accepted.) Built by the WPA in 1936 in the Streamline Moderne style, the building was the bathhouse at the cove created by breakwater piers, with colorful water themed murals on the walls. The setting is spectacular, and the exhibits about sea faring days in San Francisco, especially in the 1930s, visually appealing and informative.
Enjoy a few photos I took on a slightly rainy May day.
Interested in living in San Francisco? There are wonderful options near the Aquatic Park for a full-time residence or a pied-a-terre. I'm happy to share information about some of my favorite ones.
