Free if you have a student ID! The 65 Bus from AC transit goes up here.Great museum for kids, with plenty of interactive exhibits, a giant whale and DNA sculpture, outdoor garden, and basement with some animals.
Offers wonderful interactive exhibits to stimulate all ages. Well staffed with docents who assist with learning. The site also offers an outdoor exhibit area with world class panormic views of the bay and it's cities. Reasonably priced.
wonderful rotating exhibits. Great little restaurant downstairs all complemented by incredible view off the deck. It's about on par price wise similar feature-rich kids facilities, a little bit pricey but what they offer is worth it. There is a Planetarium, different exhibits on different floors, an animal terrarium area and events. It is sometimes crowded with parking but infrequently. We love this place and a very happy that it's here to enjoy.
We liked our visit, however the ingenuity rooms and animal discovery rooms were closed to the public, due to day camps. The other areas open had lots of camp children with staff that were not supervising the children. 2 kids under an exhibit, etc.
Our granddaughters (10 & 11) loved the visit. We packed a lunch and ate outside and enjoyed the beautiful panoramic view of the Bay area.
