Ongoing exhibits

Maritime Arts - At Sea & Ashore
With rope, wood, a brush and even a camera, sailors and artisans used their skills to transform maritime experiences into beautiful and enduring forms. Maritime Museum lobby exhibits include remarkable examples of work from the sailors' trade. At the Maritime Museum, 900 Beach St.

The park has a variety of ongoing exhibits that focus on the Asian American experience.

Look for the Grace Quan at the small boat dock on Hyde Street Pier, an example of a small craft that was used by Chinese immigrants to catch shrimp in San Francisco Bay.

Aboard the ship Balclutha, the "Chinatown" exhibit below deck provides an immersive experience into the living quarters of those who sailed to the Alaskan canneries.

At the park Visitor Center, 499 Jefferson Street, at Hyde Street, exhibits bring to life stories of 19th century Chinese immigration.
