We were in town for a business trip and brought our 5 year old son here. He had an amazing time learning to program robots and making a music video. The staff were very attentive and nice. We had a wonderful experience!

The Children's Creativity Museum was spectacular. It is great for kids of all ages, from 2 year-olds to early teens. It had imaginative and creative exhibits with hands-on activities for everyone to enjoy. We really liked it and hope to go back soon!

Our son is 3 1/2 year old. The museum had some creative exibits, but most of the things at the museum were either for children younger than him or older than him. He really took no interest in anything there. I am a little disappointed. When he gets older we might try it again.

This is a fun place in Yerba Buena Gardens area for kids to come and use their imagination. There is also a theater there. There is a spiral gallery where they plan to show artwork made by children at the center. There is also a store here. Close to the museum,, there is a merry-go-round as well as giant slides....

It’s a museum that encourages a lot of creative play and imaginative construction for kids ranging from toddlers to elementary school children. Actually, the museum is most ideal for early elementary children as it has a lot of technology facilities like the ANIMATION STUDIO and Design Studio that utilize videography and programs like Photoshop. Younger children can play in the... More

They loved making a Wheels on the Bus music video, the Lego Wall, exploring with puppets, molding and rolling floam, and building with blocks. There stuff for all ages, even teenagers would love the animation creation studio. Staff was friendly... More

There isn't very much to do, but there is a nice animation studio, where you: first make a sculpture out of clay, then you make an iStopMotion video.

I was a bit confused finding the entrance because the door is tiny compared to the size of the building. It's very obvious that it's the museum, so in that sense it's easy to find. It was bright, colorful and airy. I'm always a little grossed out at "hands on" places (drooly, sticky, snotty, normal children), but this wasn't too... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
