San Francisco Exploratorium Celebrates Innovation

San Francisco Exploratorium

With the Exploratorium set to finally reopen in mid-April after years of waiting, the site should quickly become a beacon for us geeks to play with the world's latest technologies in a structure that, if things go right, will generate just as much energy as it consumes. It's yet another on the list of great things to do in San Francisco.

When San Francisco's Exploratorium began to outgrow its 100,000-square-foot campus at the Palace of Fine Arts—where it had been since its founding in 1969—it looked for a new home, eventually settling on the city's Embarcadero, a stone's throw from downtown.

With its relocation, the Exploratorium took the opportunity to design a world-class science and technology institution with a goal of becoming the world's largest net-zero energy museum. Three months after it shuttered its old doors, and nearly a decade of planning later, the Exploratorium is set to re-open on Pier 15 next week.
