The San Francisco Dungeon is a 60 minute journey through San Francisco's past from the Gold Rush to Alcatraz.

We're an exciting mix of 9 live actor shows, 200 years of history, 360° sets, and authentic storytelling.

What people are saying...

What an amazing experience!

"What an amazing experience! Our group was not even five steps into the building and we were already loving it! You are immersed in the fun from the second you walk in by the wonderful actors and intricate scenery. My heart raced, and the smile never left my face. We will be back!"


Worth the time and money!

“We took our two teenage god kids and we all loved it! The SF / Barbary Coast history so well and dramatically told! Telling friends it is indeed worthy the time and money! CHEERS!"
