Exploratorium is far more than a science museum. It is an arcade for mad scientists, a scientific funhouse, and a serious experimental laboratory where visitors explore the world through direct participation in sciences, art, testing and stretching their own perceptions. The museum’s mission is to change the way we learn through experiences based on curiosity and inquiry.
Located on San Francisco's Embarcadero at Piers 15 and 17, the museum is divided into galleries separated by content such as Light and Sound, Living Systems, Human Behavior, Tinkering (with magnetism and electricity), the Bay Observatory Gallery, that focuses on local environment, and the Outdoor Gallery. About 600 participatory exhibits are ongoing in the museum at any time. Exploratorium is actively engaged in teachers’ professional development, reform of science education, and the promotion of the role of museums as education centers.
