Science was everywhere. The air was thick with it. Click. Clack. Tink. Tink. Plink. These sounds, resembling classic cartoons, filled the endless hallway of the new San Francisco Exploratorium museum located at Pier 15.
Through the giant glass doors, the tall grey walls surround the many fascinating exhibits. Children run gleefully from station to station, winding a wheel to see a wooden bird fly, or exploring the world of 3D objects through different colored glasses. Waves crash against the rocks in the Bay Observatory, while inside the tinkering studio people of all ages explore new worlds never imagined before. At the Exploratorium, all minds become thrust deep into curiosity, as they examine each exhibit and wonder how it works.
