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.
