CategoryScience Museum
DescriptionThe Exploratorium is a museum of science, art, and human perception, full of hundreds of playful, interactive exhibits and activities designed to spark curiosity--regardless of age. Like a scientific funhouse, art studio and an experimental laboratory all rolled into one! Come over and touch, play and tinker with hundreds of exhibits and activities, exploring sound and hearing, light and optics, life sciences and much more.

In our new home at Pier 15, opening April 17, 2013 on the Embarcadero, you'll be able to experience new exhibits and old favorites, from cow's eye dissections to giant bubbles, tornadoes you can hug, art to make you think, and much, much more!

Our mission is to create a culture of learning through innovative environments, programs, and tools that help people nurture their curiosity about the world around them. We believe that following your curiosity and asking questions can lead to amazing moments of discovery, learning, and awareness, and can increase confidence in your ability to understand how the world works. We also believe that being playful and having fun is an important part of the process for people of all ages.
