A small hidden gem in the lovely pier area in San Francisco is a museum of old game machines, before video games came to be, when things were a bit more naive and simple. It’s quite remarkable what you could do with a bit of machinery and creative vision, some of those games are just as entertaining as what we have today.

There are a few other things to do in pier 45, like decent seafood, and in the back a war-boat, the SS Jeremiah from World War II (which I thought was too expensive to visit):

Combine this with the sea lions at pier 39 and a walk along the San Francisco boardwalk.
