The first time I went to the Exploratorium was when I was seven years old and this place had a major influence on the interests I pursue now. This place isn't nearly as fun anymore; the attractions don't hold the same mystery they once did. But for a kid, this place is just magical. They can learn so much in just one day in this place. If you have kids or are taking care of some and really want to distract them for a long period of time, you really should bring them here. And for the adults, the exterior of the museum is surrounded by these gorgeous greek ruins. A perfect photo opportunity. I've seen a lot of couples take their wedding pictures here. And if that isn't cool enough, there's a lake with these huge gorgeous swan. Just don't get too close; they'll chase you down.
