SF Railway Museum

Market Street Railway

Explore San Francisco's rail transit history, focusing on exploring the positive impacts streetcars and cable cars have made on the quality of urban life in SF. The museum features a full-sized exact replica of the motorman's platform of a 1911 San Francisco streetcar, where kids of all ages can experience what it was like to be at the controls. You'll also find unique historic artifacts, illustrative and informative displays, rarely seen archival photography, and audio-visual exhibits that use 21st century technology to bring rail transit in the 19th and 20th centuries to life.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about SF Railway Museum :

San Francisco’s fleet of original vintage streetcars and cable cars function as “museums of rails” in and of themselves; to learn more about these histories, visit the SF Railway Museum. (The website offers a lot of information to whet your appetite—you can learn the history of each of the city’s vintage street cars with one click.) Plus the gift shop is extraordinary, just sayin’.
