“Very interesting.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Crawling through the Russian submarine was claustrophobic, but the Star of India was amazing. They also have a wooden gunboat, a yacht, and a riverboat. We enjoyed touring them and did learn some interesting things. The entire Embarcadero walkway was fun, with shops for appropriate things, like pretzels and kites, and rickshaws to get a ride back to your car once you've gotten blisters from all the walking.

“small then expected.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

They have docked some very nice ships, the star of India, the California, etc. but the displays inside the museum was lacking something.

The Star of India was fascinating a museum on water. The kids loved running around in the maze of the sub.

“Unique and interesting, tour the boats”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The museum is on the boats themselves. You can walk around them and see the displays yourself. The guides were friendly and this was more interesting than I really expected. The kids thought it was neat too.
