  • Great (free) opportunity to understand how the Bay works and the work done by the team to modelise it. Worth spending 2 or 3 hours, also nice exhibition on the war time shipyard.  more »

  • This tour is fascinating! A lot of history and viewing the waterways. In this model is amazing. Enjoyed it very much.
  • Amazing place. Ranger Linda Holm is an inspiring interpreter and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend a visit to the Bay Model.
  • Even if you don't know much about the architecture, the model is an amazing sight, great place to take your kids and have them find the places around the bay you've visited!
  • Interesting model of the San Francisco bay and delta area tides. The model is the size of 2 football fields and every 15 minutes or so goes from high to low tide and back again. They also have a small display about the Marinship shipyard that was there in about 1942. Interesting short film and artifacts.
  • Very informative especially the section about Marin Ships in Marin City. I never knew lil ok Sausalito had such an impact on WW2 history.
