Here at the Exploratorium, you don’t look at exhibits—you play with them. Dance with your own shadow, levitate, touch a tornado, mix colors and break light apart, stop time, start a conversation, capture a wave, explode your mind; it all can (and does) happen here.
We’ve been making our own interactive exhibits since 1969. With six spacious indoor and outdoor galleries and hundreds of exhibits on display in our museum, we’re working to create a browsable collection of these exhibits online.
Explore a diverse offering of temporary exhibits and ongoing events that are as unique as you are.
