We will be traversing some of San Francisco’s most epic hills and unique neighborhoods via Cable Car as we make our way to the historic Cable Car Museum. At the museum, participants will learn about the history of cable cars and how they work. The Cable Car Museum houses an extensive collection of historic cable cars, photographs, mechanical displays and other cable car memorabilia.Powell and Market Cable Car

One thought on “Cable Car Ride and Museum Tour on November 23”

  1. I think the Lighthouse practices ageism!! Did you ever consider that some of us elders would be interested as well in many of your “youth” activities. Besides which the youth program has much more interesting activities than you have for “adults”!!!!!

    In particular, I would like to go on this cable car experience. I’m 63 and relatively new to no/low vision. So to me, as far as alternative-sightedness, I’m not even an adolescent!!!!!
