Not worth your time. Not much here. But we do love Jack London Square, not for this cabin. But for the restaurants and shops and the waterfront.

If you are a huge Jack London Fannie guess a visit is appropriate. I saw the cabin while walking on The Oakland Estuary. Poked my head in. Yep ,it's a cabin.
