Developed by physicist Frank Oppenheimer and opened in 1969, this innovative and interactive museum behind the Palace of Fine Arts is dedicated to art, science and human perception. The hands-on displays unveil the mysteries of science and language, and present these theories simply and succinctly. For a different kind of hands-on experience, check out the tactile dome, a labyrinth of different textures that explorers navigate in the dark. Seminars on quirky subjects are offered on the weekends.
Every time I visit the Exploratorium, I am fascinated by the new and fun things to do and learn. There is room for kids to run around and get excited; the noise level is high, but that is part of the fun for the kids; and everyone can find something fun to do that will also be a learning experience!
Alot of stuff to see, do and learn about. If u like science it's even better. It will take about 3 hours, maybe a little less to completely cover everything they have. If u go u will learn something u didnt know or experienced before.
This is a place for people of all ages to go and learn something new. Or just feel like being a kid again and explore the world of nature. Best place to meet with friends with children. Kids get to wander off and adults get time to connect and still share in the learning experience.
Great place for kids or adult parties.
Our family loved the interaction of the Exploritorium. Ik kept our attention for over 5 hours (and with kids that is a long time).
I remembered it as a child and wanted my children to have the same fun experience and they did. I would recommend the Exploritorium to families of all ages
The exploratorium was a lot of fun for the kids and for the adults. I used to visit the exploritorium when I was a child and thought it was great and I still do, 20 years later. I would visit again and it's a great place for children to enjoy playing while unknowingly learning a little bit about science.
You can easily spend 5 hours in there, with many fun activities you can learn a lot from! Fun for grown-ups too!
It is located in a large structure and filled with countless 'mini science experiments' and let you interact directly with them, all designed to tickle your inner curiosity, or at least say "that's so cool", like the smooth riding square wheel.
Close to the marina with lots of parking. Tickets are $13 - $8.
