Exploratorium Market Days

Exchanging Fresh Ideas on Local Phenomena

3rd Saturdays from June–October • 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

Exploratorium, Pier 15 Plaza


Exploratorium Market Days kicks off with Local Motion – a celebration of the myriad ways people, machines, and animals get around. Free to the public.

This series of free, open-air mini-festivals brings together museum and community scientists, artists, and educators to present an abundance of encounters with local phenomena ranging from culinary seasonings to “spacecraft” made from upcycled materials.

Each Market Days event features curated art and science demos, hands-on activities, exhibits, and craft displays along the Plaza in front of Pier 15.
