A DAY AT THE MU­SEUM

Where the arts and sciences en­ter­tain all ages

Where San Francisco - - Insider -

EXPLORATORIUM San Fran­cisco’s one-of-a-kind mu­seum of sci­ence, art and hu­man per­cep­tion re-opened along the city’s water­front in 2013. Oc­cu­py­ing nine acres across Pier 15, the mu­seum fea­tures more than 600 ex­hibits, in­doors and out, in­clud­ing sev­eral ma­rine-ori­ented ex­hibits in­volv­ing the San Fran­cisco Bay. Must-sees in­clude a model of the city con­structed from more than 10,000 tooth­picks and a fallen, 330-year-old Dou­glas Fir tree split down the cen­ter to re­veal its rings. The ex­hibits are a highly in­ter­ac­tive, play­ful place to ex­plore and tinker, re­flect­ing the mu­seum’s mis­sion “to change the way the world learns.” Mu­seum restau­rants in­clude the Seis­mic Joint Café and the SeaGlass Restau­rant in the Bay Ob­ser­va­tory.
