  • Expand your mind by using microscopes, seismographs, and other real scientific equipment

San Francisco's Exploratorium is more than a museum - it's an educational experience the whole family can enjoy! Step into a world of science, art, and human perception with hundreds of interactive exhibits designed to boggle the mind.

Ever seen a massive storm and wished you could find out what was going on in the center of a tornado? Now's your chance.

Take a look at yourself in a huge oversized mirror. This curved piece of reflective glass was originally part of a flight simulator. You won't believe the sights and sounds you'll discover!

Use a microscope to investigate developing eggs from zebrafish, and see how your pulse compares to theirs. Stamp your feet and make a miniature earthquake with the seismograph, or explore amazing images made from shadows.

With hundreds of exhibits, you can enjoy a whole day of expanding your mind.

Exploratorium is amazing. We took our grandsons ages 13 and 14 and they loved it. We were there for 4 hours and wish we could have stayed longer. It’s a must for San Francisco
