We enjoyed seeing the SS Jeremiah O'Brien in San Francisco. We've toured it before. This time due to the fire it was relocated. It was nice to see the ship again. more »
A must see experience in San Francisco. The story of the ship and simply being on this vessel is an incredible experience. The volunteers are absolutely awesome people, and they were delighted to fill me in on anything that came up. Make sure to check out the engine room and the crew quarters...and everything. See everything. Great for anyone interested in history.
Fascinating history. If you go (totally worth the $20) be sure to watch the movie in the museum. So thankful for all the brave men who served on her to deliver supplies and soldiers during WWII.
