Our Sincere Thanks

Our move to Pier 15 transformed the Exploratorium forever. But it was just the beginning.

With your generous support, the Exploratorium has dramatically expanded the reach of its world-renowned exhibits, education and professional-development programs, and research efforts worldwide. The net result: a profound advancement in fostering a global culture of inquiry.

Individual Giving

Our thanks to the friends who helped support the Exploratorium with gifts made July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2014. Their generosity provided much-needed resources to help deepen our impact on science education and interactive learning worldwide.
