  • Beautiful old ships, very well maintained, free to visit with the America pass. Informative panels (in English) are well informed, a cleanliness of the premises commit you to a quiet educational walk.

  • A piece of history. Picturesque... Not far from the cable car turn around... Nearby via a ten minute walk is a fascinating collection of World War II ships, including a noble Liberty Ship, submarine and more... This neighborhood is wonderful with numerous photo opportunities and is a delight to walk through. I much prefer to Pier 39.
  • What a cool historical place. Several ships you can tour. From different time periods. Very interesting. Intriguing. Informational. A place to learn about life on a ship 200 years ago.
