We've been a few times with our son, both before and after his second birthday. He got something different from it each time, and I think it will continue to grow with him for several years. The science experiments are very hands on and kid friendly, the animals are well presented, and the live shows were extremely friendly. In general... More

Spent a good three hours here with my 17 month old. Nice mix of animal exhibits and science exhibits. Small enough place where she could walk everywhere. Plenty of parking $6. Open layout, nice picnic area for a lunch break. Spent another two hours at the mini playground near the parking lot. Small ramps and mini slides, perfect for her... More

My daughter loves coming here and our favorites are the badger and the otters! It is so fun watching the animals being fed and then going inside and playing with all the sciencey experiments!

Great place to take kids to see some science experiments and visit rescued animals (otters, birds of prey, raccoons, bobcats, snakes). Nearby Magic Mountain playground is great too. Don't have all day to drive into SF? Stop here for a few hours instead.

I had been here many many years ago when it was Coyote point museum on a field trip. Boy, how it changed. Initially we came here to take a few pictures because we were playing with some new camera equipment. The museum is within the park, so to get in it cost $6. There were a lot of parking spaces...

Just the right size for a two hour visit for little ones. It combines principles of physics with animal welfare and is in a lovely setting near the bay.

Toddlers won't understand most of the science involved but may like the outdoor portion with the animals. The 6-10 yr age group will love the experiments and will spend hours being entertained by all the interactive areas. Almost all areas may be used by multiple children at one time so everyone will get a turn. The outdoor animal rescue area... More

For those visiting the area, this is a fun museum for the little ones to visit. The museum has local animals that they can get pretty close to, and the science exhibits is such a nice bonus. It's not expensive, and for the entry fee and parking fee, you get more than just the museum. You get the playgrounds nearby... More

Great place for children, families, and friends! Wonderful views all around, including airplanes landing at the nearby SFO. CuriOdyssey is a wonderful destination and a must place to visit for locals or visitors.
