    This museum touches different sciences - biology (dissecting a cow's eye. seeing a chick's heart beating, shrimps), geology, physics (wheels, floating fabrics). So much to see and explore with kids. Worth the time and energy to visit!

    The museum is located on Corona Heights Park and focuses on the cultures & environments of Bay Area SF. Museum is mainly for education of children , which includes workshops of arts , science, crafts & nature.
    Museum has three floors, the exhibits are on main & lower levels, whereas upper level is reserved for class rooms.
    The California inhabitants display at main level is worth watching. Also the toy train at lower levels is source of attraction for children.
    We appreciate the creativity & curiosity generated during our visit to this place.

    The location of museum is awesome!

    This is a reincarnated museum at the American Academy of Ophthalmology. I came here several years ago when the displays were scattered throughout the office's hallways. I saw on Instagram that they now have their own space on the ground floor of the building, so I visited about 2 weeks ago. They've added lots of interactive displays, including VR. I lucked out -- the director, Jenny, was there and she was extremely knowledgeable and answered all my quirky questions. I love medical museums and would definitely recommend this one if you go to SF. Plus, it's free!
