San Francisco , CATripAdvisor Traveler Rating
The Exploratorium is more than a museum; it's an ongoing exploration of science, art, and human perception. Visitors of all ages can step inside a tornado, turn upside down in a giant curved mirror, walk on a fog bridge, and explore more than 650 hands-on exhibits. You'll find all of this plus unique programs, and events; a cafe and restaurant; two stores; and more at our beautiful San Francisco bayside location on the historic Embarcadero - conveniently located between the Ferry Building and Pier 39. See for yourself why we are rated the #1 Museum in San Francisco on TripAdvisor!
