This was one of the best experiences of our entire trip. We had 3 adults in our party. Two retired teachers and a newly minted PhD. We all throughly enjoyed it. In our hometown we have several interactive museums but none of them measure up to the Exploratourium. The exhibits were well thought out and offered the science in an entertaining and fun way. We highly recommend it for those spending more than just a couple of days in the area.

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful date night at the Exploratorium's After Dark. We ran around, played with their cool experiments and mind boggling contraptions. We were giddy. It was good to feel the excitement of childhood wonder again. One of my favorite pieces was Flock, a simulation where you can observe and manipulate birds in flight, SO COOL. I also love the tidal memory towards the back of the museum, it shows the last 24 hours of the tides and has great views of the bay too. We can't wait to go back, there is so much more to experience and explore!

I have been going to the Exploritorium for over 40 years, and there are so many reasons that this is a MUST DO whenever I have visitors in town. Not only is the museum educational, but it is 100% interactive. It is great for all ages and I can't think of a better thing to do for date night. Do not miss this one of a kind experience right down on the water front in San Francisco. Walking distance to the Ferry Building, Pier 23 (amazing locals only restaurant) and fishermans warf. You're welcome.

Hands down, my favorite place in SF, and easily the best museum in the city. The exploratorium rotates through new exhibits constantly, is diverse and inclusive to all, and every time I go there, I feel like I have seen something new.

I go there pretty often for Thursday nightlife sans the kids, and every Thursday they have something new and cool to look at and learn. My favorite time was when they brought in live animals from a wildlife rescue. I got to see a REAL baby sloth, and was able to pet a REAL baby alligator (so soft!)!

They had a diversity exhibit running for a moment too, where they had the real Black Panther costume on display, and cool learning opportunities for people of all ages to learn about inclusion. I frequently go with children of all ages during the day, and adults of all ages during Thursday nightlife - and also during the day when I can play hookie from work!

You can usually find me walking along the embarcadero, where I am quick to mention to any passerby to make sure and visit the Exploratorium any chance they get.

12/10 would recommend.

I was there for the After Dark events on Thursdays evenings and had a great time just exploring the exhibits while sipping on some drinks. The museum had a great crowd and I'd highly recommend checking this out as a night time activity!

The Exploratorium #AfterDark was a fantastic post-Christmas outing with my adult family. They say kids of all ages can enjoy the science museum, but it’s a much more enjoyable time with cocktails and sans the squealing children 😂😂😂 my family, ages 29 to 61 absolutely loved the experiments and the experience! Thanks Exploratorium!

Dozens of experiments throughout in which the visitor can participate contributing to actual data collection for refinements of selected endeavors. My favorite was being shown different photographs after each of which a robot would "read" my reaction (happy, sad, disgusted, surprised, etc). I would then confirm or deny the robot's findings. Enjoyable evening, but go early as it soon gets crowded. Wine and other refreshments overpriced and I passed on them.

I was anticipating a great experience at the Exploratorium but it turned out to be much better. And this place is big! The exhibits range from ok toys to truly educational experiences. Very well done!
