Where is Exploratorium?
This remarkable museum dedicated entirely to scientific education fills a former Pier with hundreds of imaginative exhibits and experiments.
The cave-like building is ideal for particularly energetic children who like to race from one exhibit to the next – to learn about sound waves, play with prisms, learn magic tricks or see how fog is created. The exhibits are changed at regular intervals, so that there is something new to discover every time you visit. In addition, you have a small cinema – in the calendar you can look up when special films are shown here or screenings take place.
The fun continues outside – with various free offers such as stationary bikes, which convey knowledge about energy, and unusual climbing frames in fantastic shapes. Don’t miss the glass viewing cube at the end of the pier: climb the steps to enjoy fascinating views of sailboats, cargo ships and ferries, as well as the nearby Bay Bridge, Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island.
