Visit the Exploratorium at Pier 15
The Exploratorium is more than a museum—it’s a gateway to exploring science, art, and human perception with every visit. Let your curiosity roam through more than 600 interactive exhibits in six spacious indoor and outdoor galleries. You’ll find world-famous Tactile Dome, our one-of-a-kind stores, dining, and more at our beautiful San Francisco bayside location.

Rated #1 museum in San Francisco.
Museum, dining, and shopping hours vary on select days.
Although the Exploratorium is following all required safety protocols and procedures, we recognize that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. You will be visiting at your own risk, and should use your judgment as to whether you are comfortable being in a public space.
A membership makes it easier and more affordable for you and your family to connect with your curiosity (and each other) all year long, and pays for itself in as few as three visits.
