The Exploratorium is your playground after dark! Wander the galleries, sip a cocktail, and choose your own adventure with 600+ interactive exhibits. Can a garden transport you to another place? What memories are stirred by the scents of different plants? And how do sunflowers fit so many seeds in their center? Check out our newest exhibition, ¡Plantásticas!, and explore these questions and more.  

DJ Dance Party
