Weekend in San Francisco
Family Friendly Attractions - Part 3
The San Francisco Exploratorium is a museum of science, art and human perception that is designed to intrigue visitors of all ages curiosity. I like to think of the Exploratorium as a giant playground showcasing interactive educational fun at its very best.
I remember visiting the Exploratorium as a kid at its old location near the Palace of Fine Arts, but the Exploratorium now has a new waterfront location on Pier 15 on the Embarcadero. It is approximately halfway between the Ferry Building and Pier 39, making it a great stop between the two iconic locations. The new Exploratorium is huge and features over 650 interactive exhibits. It also has nice views of the San Francisco Bay and the of Bay Bridge on the second level of the building.
