The Exploratorium is a portal to the astonishing scientific phenomena that animate our world and shape our actions. We create extraordinary learning experiences that ignite curiosity, upend perceptions, and inspire brave leaps forward. Since 1969, the Exploratorium’s museum at Pier 15 in San Francisco has been home to a renowned collection of exhibits that draw together science, art, and human perception, and that have helped change the way science is taught. Our award-winning programs provide a forum for the public to engage with artists, scientists, policy-makers, educators, and tinkerers to explore the world around them. We celebrate diversity of thought, inspired investigation, and collaboration across all boundaries.
