When it comes to hands-on science museums… the Exploratorium leads the pack. And we’re not just talking about entertainment for the kids here. Tammy and I not only enjoyed having an avenue to teach science to the kids, but we learned lots too. We’ve visited twice. Here’s our latest video from their new location in Pier 15.

Here’s an older video from their previous location. Although the building is different, the experiments and exhibits are very much the same.

When you go, plan to spend at least 5 or 6 hours. Yes, I’m serious. It’s just that amazing. They’ve got several restrooms, 50 cent lockers, a cafe, bookstore, etc. We wanted a sit-down meal and found a nearby restaurant. Check out the link.  Il Fornaio Italian Restaurant
