About the Exploratorium
Since its opening in 1969, the Exploratorium has become a beloved San Francisco institution, combining the studies of science, art and human perception into an educational space. The Exploratorium is not just a museum; it's a public learning laboratory, where adults and children alike can play and interact with the exhibits. Once described as "a mad scientist's penny arcade, a scientific funhouse, and an experimental laboratory all rolled into one," this learning playground is considered the model for participatory museums around the world.
