Located in San Francisco, California, the Exploratorium is a public learning laboratory exploring the world through science, art, and human perception. Our vision is a world where people think for themselves and can confidently ask questions, question answers, and understand the world around them. We create tools and experiences that help you to become an active explorer: hundreds of explore-for-yourself exhibits, a website with over 50,000 pages of content, film screenings, evening art and science events for adults, plus much more.
