    It’s the only place in San Francisco to touch, tinker, and play with hundreds of interactive exhibits.

    From large-scale outdoor art installations to explorations of microscopic life in the Bay, they embrace the wild wonder at the intersection of science and art. You will dance with your own shadow, touch a tornado, stop time, start a conversation, capture a wave and more at this inspirational and educational museum. Best described as a learning laboratory for all ages, the Exploratorium encourages independent thinking and curious minds.
