The Exploratorium is an incredible experience that came highly reccomended to me by many of my San Francisco friends. This wildly imaginative intereactive museum is truly fun for all ages and sits right on the SF bay overlooking Treasure Island. It's close to the notoriously touristy Pier 39 and several delicious dining options.
Toddlers will be wonderstruck as they stand inside a man made tornado, dig and build with magnetic sand, create mega bubbles, and so much more. There are six exhibits: Observing Landscapes, Outdoor Exhibits, Living Systems, Seeing and Listening, Tinkering, and Human Phenomena. All of them with their own unique charm, you could spend hours playing, experimenting, and observing with each installment.
There are two places to buy food and beverages inside of the building: The Seaglass Restaurant and the Seismic Joint Cafe.
