The Best Ways to View @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz Before It Closes

Just to make certain you don’t miss this singular opportunity to see the @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz exhibition before it closes on April 26, 2015, we have a few tips for you on ticket purchases: 

  1. The Ai Weiwei exhibition is free to individual and group purchasers with a purchase of a ferry ride to Alcatraz through Alcatraz Cruises.
  2. Early Bird tickets sell out early so make sure to buy your ticket a minimum of 5 days before the date you want to attend.
  3. The ferry will be departing  from Pier 33 on the Embarcadero; using public transportation is recommended to avoid parking fees. The recommended boarding time is 30 minutes before your scheduled departure.
  4. There are 7 installations and a three-hour audio tour.
  5. One last tip, dress warmly! San Francisco can get a bit chilly during the early morning and late afternoon. And wear comfortable shoes. Alcatraz is laced with stairways and the walk from the dock to the main cell block is a fairly steep incline.
