Welcome to Historic


The Exploratorium is more than a museum; it’s an ongoing exploration of science, art, and human perception. Step inside a tornado, turn upside down in a giant curved mirror, walk on a fog bridge, and explore more than 650 hands-on exhibits. You'll find all of this plus unique programs, discussions, and events; a café and restaurant; two stores; and more at our beautiful bayside location on the historic Embarcadero. The Exploratorium is conveniently located at Pier 15 between the Ferry Building and Pier 39, and is a short distance from: Fisherman’s Wharf, the ferries to Alcatraz, and AT&T Park.
