  • A great place for kids to experiment and enjoy discovering some interesting scientific phenomena. There is a lot to do and our little one got so engaged that she didn't want to go home at the end of the day. They have a place for dining outside that overlooks the whole Bay area but it the wind was blowing hard up there. The 3D documentary was fun to watch for all ages. Staff are courteous and helpful. I definitely recommend this place. There were plenty of parking spaces, but not for free.
  • Cool place! And I recommend! Amazing view! Very beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay, San Francisco. If the wind is from the ocean, you can smell it. You can have a cocktail and just enjoy the sunset. ! Thanks for reading!
