The Exploratorium is more than a museum; it’s an ongoing exploration of science, art, and human perception. Visitors of all ages can step inside a tornado, turn upside down in a giant curved mirror, walk on a fog bridge, and explore more than 650 hands-on exhibits. You'll find all of this plus unique programs, discussions, and events; a café and restaurant; two stores; and more at our beautiful San Francisco bayside location on the historic Embarcadero. We offer special rates for groups of ten or more, with a free ticket for the group leader. Want more? We can provide lunch for your group or arrange reservations for our famous Tactile Dome—a journey through total darkness. Please discuss these options with our reservations office. See for yourself why we are rated the #1 Museum in San Francisco on TripAdvisor!
