San Francisco's Exploratorium is more than just a fun and educational museum during daytime - it's a lot of fun on Thursday nights, too. Step into a world of science, art, and human perception at night with over 650 hands-on exhibits designed to boggle the mind.
Grab your friends and a drink from the bar, and enter a special Thursday night experience at one of San Francisco's most fun museums. How will you fare in a pitch-black dome? Will you make it across the fog bridge?
The special adults-only programming promises a night of unique guest speakers, great music, specialty films, and one-of-a-kind activities.
