The Exploratorium is the most experimental museum in the world—the only place in San Francisco where you can touch, tinker, and play with more than 600 interactive exhibits. From large-scale outdoor art installations to explorations of microscopic life in the Bay, they embrace the wild wonder at the intersection of science and art. They are best described as a learning laboratory for all ages, and the best place to truly immerse yourself in San Francisco’s independent, innovative culture. Curious? Check it out.
