We visited during a holiday to SF. There is a range of activities, including dressing up, foam building blocks, kinetic sand, animation room, sing along, programming robot toys with code using a tablet computer. The is also a beautiful and historical carousel beside the museum.

I've been here before but I think they have added to the facility. Seems like much more, or at least better, than before. Great venue for kids to try new things - from simple drawing to robotic programming. Staff very nice and helpful. Often crowded...More

Your review makes me so pleased, it is exactly our aim to provide a multi-generational experience that involves young children and the adults that care for them. Please bring your grand-daughter often.

It looked more like a daycare, usual toys and play stations. First floor is more for kids aged 1-2 and second floor for kids 4-5. Only cool thing is that you can record a green background video on second floor. :(

We had a blast here, especially in the animation room. Also the Mystery Box exhibit upstairs, and the music video/costume area. On first floor were lots of things for toddlers.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
