When we were there we got discounted tickets to the dungeon but that was also four years ago.

The price was around $30/ adult. we visited mid morning mid week and was not very crowded. Had a great time using the props and taking all our own photos.

I think it was $29 for entrance which included The Dungeon tour (history of SFO). My guess to go is mid-afternoon or late evenings.
