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 over 650 hands-on 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 over 650 hands-on exhibits, you can enjoy a whole day of expanding your mind. But will you drink from a water fountain fashioned from an actual (unused, don't worry) toilet?

Place is great. 4 hours flew by and could have stayed longer. So much to do and see.
