Kids and adults both will love the all new Exploratorium in San Francisco! Recently reopened in a brand-new building, this favorite family attraction boasts a convenient new location along the Embarcadero waterfront, between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Ferry Building. Enjoy the vibrant bayside energy of Pier 15, and then head inside the discovery museum with your all-day general admission ticket.
Explore at your own pace on a self-guided experience through more than 650 exhibits spread across five different galleries, including an open air-space outside and many brand-new features. Isolate the senses at the Seeing and Listening gallery, and discover the inner workings of the brain in the Human Phenomena space.
Get creative by building mechanical contraptions in the Tinkering gallery, and investigate Earth’s amazing eco-systems at the Living Systems area. Learn about the natural and human forces that shape the unique San Francisco Bay Area in an outdoor discovery space, and take in sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay and new Bay Bridge at the Bay Observatory Gallery.
