The Exploratorium is located near the Golden Gate Bridge, in the Palace of Fine Arts. ~~ This was a great experience for our family. It's very fun and hands-on for kids, who will also learn a lot. Your kids can blow huge bubbles, learn about (and feel) a tornado, work on brain teasers, and learn about optical illusions. ~~ The Tactile Dome is a completely dark area where you must rely on touching and no other senses to find your way through. It's a really unique experience to feel all the textures, while crawling and feeling your way through. ~~ This is a great outing for a Sunday when other things are closed. You can make a picnic and enjoy it on the grounds and take in the views, then tour the museum. Hours are 10 to 6.
