This beautiful ship is one of two remaining fully functional Liberty ships of the 2,710 built and launched during World War II, according to http://www.ssjeremiahobrien.org/. Moored at Pier 45, Fisherman's Wharf and she is a premier San Francisco attraction!
Stepping back to the past happened immediately as we walked up to the entrance of the ship. It was surreal especially when we were touring the living quarters and try to imagine the life style on this historic ship.
The self-guided tour is truly a fantastic way to learn about WWII history. There are staff on the ship who are extremely knowledgeable. They really do take pride in this ship and answered all of our questions. It takes you back to history, and it was one incredible experience.
The ship opens daily from 9am to 4pm and it’s right by Peir 45, Fisherman’s Wharf. Can’t miss this opportunity to be part of the historic experience!
