2013/08/10 Visiting the Exploratorium in San Francisco
π 2013-08-10 01:01 in Sciencemuseums
I often go to science museums in cities around the world, and I enjoy demos that make science look cool to others, outside of a cool "science, it works bitches" :)

Well, I have to say that the Exploratorium in San Francisco is the clear winner so far. They have hours (4H+ for us), of cool demos and science related exhibits, most of which I've never seen anywhere else. If does not make science cool to others.

Since we were in San Francisco, and had paid the lovely parking fee which can go over $30 now, we walked around Fisherman's Warf and Pier 39.

$40 parking is full, great...
