Follow your curiosity this summer to the Exploratorium on San Francisco’s scenic waterfront. All season long, TripAdvisor’s #1-rated museum in San Francisco will stay open to explorers of all ages—so from May 23 to September 2, visit us any day of the week for special summer programming and to tinker with more than 650 interactive exhibits investigating science, art, and human perception.
Here at the Exploratorium, you don’t just look at exhibits—you play with them. Dance with your own shadow, journey through total darkness in our famous Tactile Dome, and spark great conversations at Self, Made: Exploring You in a World of We. Don’t miss Moon Month, our July-long celebration of all things lunar, and revel in adults-only after-hours every week at After Dark Thursday Nights.
