This interactive museum is dedicated to exciting experiments, fascinating discoveries and powerful games!

Founded in 1969, the Exploratorium is packed with fun and fascinating activities for all of the family. Discover more than 600 interactive exhibits, including several experimental activities that were specially designed for the museum’s recent relocation to Pier 15.

Weird and wonderful environments are revealed through an eye-opening collection of artwork, installations and exhibitions. You’ll even get the chance to observe your own world on different scales and from different perspectives.

You can also take in spectacular views of San Francisco and the whole bay from the museum’s new observatory.
