San Francisco State University
See artifacts from around the world. Their ancient Egyptian artifacts come from the collection of former San Francisco Mayor Adolph Sutro. In the 1800s he displayed them in a museum exhibit at the Sutro Baths.
Fort Point National Historic Site
U.S. Army engineers built Fort Point during the Civil War to protect San Francisco from any attacks by the Confederates on sea. They were also ready for any attacks from foreign nations. There was never a battle at Fort Point. Today, people can tour and visit the fort that’s been around over 150 years, and stands right by the Golden Gate Bridge. There’s a lot to do including a candlelight tour at night.
