The winner of SF Magazine’s 2018 “Best Museum Party” award, our sustainably designed facility—located in the vibrant heart of the historic Embarcadero—is an unforgettable venue for everything from intimate gatherings to large events. With spectacular views of both city and Bay—plus access to our lively landscape of hundreds of hands-on exhibits—the Exploratorium’s waterfront home offers an exciting, imaginative setting for just about anything you can dream up.
