We just visited the Exploratorium’s spectacular new waterfront location on Pier 15, overlooking San Francisco Bay – it opened on April 17, 2013. The Exploratorium Museum of Science, Art and Human Perception (a $300m project) is triple the size of its former location at the Palace of Fine Arts and has more outdoor space, offering breathtaking views of S.F. Bay. Guaranteed to bring out the kid in you, the hands-on interactive Exploratorium is a FUN place to explore with your family and friends when visiting San Francisco – check out our favorite things below:
The Magna Carta May 7 – June 5, 2011 Don’t miss seeing the Magna Carta (Great Charter of English Liberties) – one of the most important legal documents in the history of democracy – on display now for a limited time only at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor as part of BritWeek 2011. It’s the first public display on this continent in its nearly 800-year history (it was in the U.S. twice before, both times for private events only).
“Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond: Post Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay” September 25, 2010 – January 18, 2011 If you liked the previous exhibit (“Birth of Impressionism”), you’re gonna love this one even more… I know we did! The second of two exhibitions from the Musée d’Orsay’s permanent collection “Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond: Post Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay” is on display at the de Young Museum in San Francisco (it runs thru’ January 18, 2011).
