The Railway Museum (website) is a Museum in San Francisco.
Official description from Railway Museum:

The San Francisco Railway Museum packs a great experience into a compact space, just across from the famous Ferry Building. The museum is designed to complement the historic rail vehicles of the F-line and cable car lines by serving as an information and interpretation center for them.

San Francisco is one of the few places in the world where you can get the actual experience of riding vintage rail transit in its “natural habitat” — the rumble of the motors under your feet, the swaying of the car itself, the smell of the brakes. Before or after you take that magical ride on the “museums in motion,” visit our museum to make your experience complete.

What we offer at the museum is a celebration of San Francisco’s rail transit history, focused on exploring the positive impacts streetcars and cable cars have made on the quality of urban life in this great city.

Wikipedia excerpt:
The San Francisco Railway Museum is a local railway museum located in the South of Market area of San Francisco. This small museum features exhibits on the antique streetcars of the F Market & Wharves and national landmark cable cars that continue to run along the city's major arteries. The museum is located at the Steuart Street F line stop, across the street from the Ferry Building. Admission to the museum is free.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the Railway Museum homepage or our exhibitions list for S.F.-wide exhibits.
