“Fantastic views and good exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Worth the drive just for the view/location, which is spectacular. The building itself is very cool, and often they have good exhibits.

“Epic views, awesome science”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Great view at the top of the hill of the whole Bay Area. The museum is fun and fact-filled to and you are in a historically important place, so make sure to read up about it before you go.
