Photo of the Wave Organ, San Francisco

Photo of the Wave Organ, San Francisco in San Francisco, USA

The Wave Organ, created by Peter Richards and George Gonzales and their team in 1986, uses a series of pipes that make sounds as the waves move in and out of them. There are a number of pipes you can listen to, which make strange humming and gurgling sounds. In the distance, you can see Alcatraz. I visited the Wave Organ when I went on a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. Look out for it near the Exploratorium, but consult a map before you go - the locals I asked for directions didn't know it was there.
