The Exploratorium isn’t just for tourists you know.

Located in Pier 15, along the San Francisco waterfront, it’s the perfect destination combined with a stroll along the Embarcadero and a snack at the nearby Ferry Building.

The Exploratorium isn’t your ordinary stand and stare museum. Most exhibits are interactive, suitable for bored children and photo-ops. Every Sunday there are hands-on activities in the Tinkering Studio, where they make learning science actually fun. There’s even a DIY twist on the classic Mouse Trap game.

Hip Tip: There are often racy exhibits during the adults only Thursday 6p – 10p hours.
