  • Interesting idea for an art project. It faces downtown San Francisco and offers views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge as you walk to it after parking @ Crissy Field. 
  • Cool place to hang out. Sounds like this: "bwop bell bwip splush sol wrsh bwop" truley life changin experience
  • The wave organ is wave-activated acoustic sculpture that uses a series of pipes that interact with the waves producing amazing melodies. 25 organ pipes made of PVC and concrete located at various elevations within the site, allowing for the rise and fall of the tides. Constructed by the Exploratorium back in 1986.

  • Heads up, Check the tide before you go... This place is so lovely, cozy, romantic, and just simply beautiful, and that's without considering the organ part of it... Time well spent here anytime even in the middle of the night.
  • I took my wife here, it was her first time at this place. We recommend it as it's very romantic.
