This building offers a close-up peek at the nerve center of San Francisco's cable-car system; you will see and hear the giant wheels of cables that pull the cars. Don't miss the excellent documentary film, historic objects and vintage cable-cars, one of which dates back to the foundation of the system in 1873.
