"Maritime Museum" San Diego Maritime Museum Tip by Ken_Weaver
San Diego Maritime Museum, San Diego: 37 reviews and 99 photos
This is a collection of several ships including the Star of India, the worlds oldest sailing ship; the Berkeley which was a ferry boat that shuttled survivors across SF Bay following the Great 1906 Earthquake; the HMS Rose, which was used in the movie "Master and Commander, The Far Side of the World;" several smaller steam driven yachts and now most recently, a former Russian Submarine, the B-39.
The Star of India is the star of the museum having sailed around the world 21 times. It has been restored totally and is totally functional as a sailing ship.
The HMS Rose is a replica of an 18th Century sailing ship. It was used for sail training from 1985 to 2001. It was then purchased to be used in the film. As you walk below you will see the gun placements just as they were in the movie. Also, the captains cabin is just as it was in the film also.
I was there the weekend before Memorial Day which was the first day of showing for the B-39 Submarine, so I will have to view that at another time.
The museum is open 365 days a year from 9am to 8 pm.
Juniors, Seniors and Military $8
