This experience is definitely not one for the kids – you’re entering into complete and total darkness, and can be a little scary. There are sounds that are relaxing, and sounds that are jarring – it’s not so much a music experience as an auditory one.

Built into the Marina District, this unique spot is located just past the Golden Gate Yacht Club. It was created in 1986 by the Exploratorium. The organ is made out of PVC pipes that connect to the bottom of the bay. The pipes make different sounds when the waves hit them. It’s a truly magical experience.
