Fun museum for children who really want to get involved with hands on activities. But from an adult perspective the VIEW is amazing from the grounds of the museum. On a clear day, you can see all of the Bay Area and with the help of a location guide map you can discern all important landmarks. If it's a clear day and you want a place to show your out of town guests a view I would say pack everyone up in the car and head to the Lawrence Hall of Science. Learn a bit and take in the view!
