Living the San Francisco Dream

San Francisco's Maritime Museum

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.

I have passed there several times and never went inside because of parking meter issues.

Cousin Arnold who lectures often told me his paintings are at display in SF Asian Art Museum now....

We're fortunate living here - we walk almost everywhere and don't need to worry about parking, Sam Shueh - next time try parking at the very end of Van Ness Avenue; some parking is available at nearby Fort Mason, too.

Lottie I have heard about San Francisco's Maritime Museum. My uncle owned a couple of boat dealerships, one in Sausalito.

Hi Sheila Anderson - I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. The Maritime Museum is an attractive, nicely layed out museum.

Hi Lottie!

The Maritime Museum in San Francisco would be fun to enjoy over and over again. I don't think I'd ever get tire of it either! There is so much more beneath the sea that people don't know or understand. What a great and educational experience! Plus you had an amazing day too!

The Martime Museum is a small attraction, just right for a quiet, refreshing moment, Patricia Feager
