If you're scheduling a visit, be sure to call ahead as the one-man operation is open on an erratic schedule based on maintenance and weather. If you're serendipitous and come upon Camera Obscura when it is open, go with the flow and pay the nominal fee to enter. You will be mesmerized far beyond what the kitschy exterior may lead you to believe.Recommended for:

Using a design from Leonardo Di Vinci, the Camera Obscura reflects sunlight from outside and projects a beautiful, crisp moving image of the seashore outside onto a curved platform inside. The image is beautiful, and the science is cool. And at $3 - why not.Recommended for:

I love photography and if you do then check out an attraction showcasing one of the first forms of photography - the camera obscura. It is a small building next to the White House along the north west coast of San Francisco by North Beach. For only a small 3 bucks and a few minutes of your time you shall discover how the photography processes first started - in a dark room with one small hole beaming the light from the outside world onto a plain white table with images of the surroundings painted right before your eyes. Be inspired and then maybe even try the process when you go home!
