Things to see and do in San Francisco
Aug 19, 2013 - The Exploratorium, San Francisco
The Exploratorium in San Francisco is an exciting place to go with friends and family members. To make life easier for everyone, when you are planning for a trip here, do consider renting a San Francisco bus – so that there is no bickering or arguing when the driver can’t seem to find the place nor is there an issue when you need to find a proper parking space to park the car (or cars if you happen to be travelling in a big group).
The Exploratorium has 6 main galleries – with each gallery focusing on a different area of exploration for visitors to see and experience. You and the other passengers traveling in the San Francisco rental bus can expect that the exhibits and displays at The Exploratorium to be very fun and interesting as you get to “play” with it and discover, learn and understand how the world that we live in works. As you tour around the galleries, you will not once feel bored as there seems to be something to see or try out at every corner of the galleries. In short, there is always something for everyone to do, touch, hear, see or even make as you go about the galleries.
Excitement would probably be the closest word that we can use to describe the feeling of the visitors to The Exploratorium – from the young to the old. It does not matter what your age is, as long as you are in The Exploratorium itself, the world inside seems to make you feel like a little kid – touching almost everything that you see only to see it making sounds or responding to your touch. And if you are feeling a little extra adventurous, do make a visit to the Tactile Dome as part of your admission into The Exploratorium. The Tactile Dome is a small geodesic dome that is really dark and is located within The Exploratorium. Once you are inside, you will need to climb and crawl your way through it – please remember to remove everything that is in your pockets as you may just have something fall out of your pockets and the chances of finding them are almost zero. However, if you happen to be claustrophobic, we would not recommend this activity for you, as it will only accentuate your claustrophobia. The Tactile Dome is not the only thing that visitors can “play” in, as there are still other things that you can have fun with at The Exploratorium before you head home in the San Francisco rental bus.
