High-tech exhibitry tells the story of San Francisco’s colorful and diverse maritime heritage in San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park’s first Visitor Center. A First Order Fresnel lighthouse lens, a magnificent brass structure encasing hundreds of precisely polished prisms, guides visitors through the door. Once inside, they can get a heading from the uniformed Rangers staffing an information desk, or simply sail through the fun and interactive panels and displays.
