The Exploratorium is an experimental, hands-on museum designed to spark curiosity - regardless of your age or your familiarity with science. With hundreds of exhibits to touch, look through, pick up, and tinker with, let curiosity be your compass to endless discoveries! The Exploratorium is located in the Palace of Fine Arts, near the Golden Gate Bridge.
Exhibits cover a range of subject areas, including human perception (such as vision, hearing, learning, and cognition), the life sciences, and physical phenomena (such as light, motion, electricity, waves and resonance, and weather). A wide variety of public programs, artists-in-residence projects, and demonstrations accompany all exhibit collections.
