The unique Exploratorium is a combination art, science and human perception museum. The museum aims to get visitors questioning the world around them and making their own discoveries. To do so Exploratorium focuses on play and creating fun experiences for all ages.

 The museum features hundreds of exhibits, film screenings and workshops. Exhibits cover topics ranging from astronomy & space, culture, earth, human body, sense perception, material world and more. At Exploratorium you will find unique “explainers” rather than docents. Explainers are a diverse, young group who teach and learn along with museum visitors. Extending its outreach, Exploratorium hosts evening art and science events for adults and professional development programs for educators.

Whether you have a few days to explore the museum or just a few hours, Exploratorium will keep you intrigued and entertained.
