The Exploratorium is San Francisco's hands-on science museum. The first of its kind in the country, it has been wowing residents and visitors alike since 1969.
The expanded location at Pier 15 along the Embarcadero allows for more displays than ever, including the visiting exhibition of Theo Jansen's dream machines, the Strandbeest, now through September 5.
Come take one of the smaller strandbeests for a walk!
Open daily in June, July and August, there is one evening each week set aside for adults 18 and older - Thursdays, from 6:00 - 10:00 PM. This is a great idea for a date night, for a work group to enjoy, or any adult wishing smaller crowds.
