San Francisco Exploratorium
The Exploratorium in San Francisco is more than just a science museum. Exploratorium is San Francisco’s interactive science, art and human perception museum. With more than 700 exhibits, live demonstrations, and films, Exploratorium offers a unique eye-opening, educational journey for visitors of all ages—from toddlers to teens to adults! With so many offerings such as astronomy, culture, the human body and everyday science to name a few, the Exploratorium provides every visitor with an unforgettable experience. Exploratorium staff members enjoy the food science and optical illusion stations the most; however, the most talked-about exhibit is the Tactile Dome—a bubble of complete darkness that you must maneuver through using all of your senses, except sight!
After a fact-filled day at the Exploratorium take time to relax. From Pier 15, stroll along the Embarcadero south to the Ferry Building with all its extraordinary dining options, or north to the world renowned Fisherman's Wharf and enjoy all it has to offer. Also, nearby there are areas for casual dining and shopping.
