Great for kids and much closer to east bay families than The Exploratorium but in serious need of an update.

No where in the title of this place does it tell you that it is for little kids! SO- for your very young kids it is fine. Even for mature 10 year olds it would be too childish for them. So- don't bother if you are a grown up. If you want a great experience for all ages go to the CA academy of sciences. AND for that matter- go on a Thursday night and hear music and have drinks and food too

Maybe you have to be inclined towards math and science, but my 6 & 9yo truly love it here, and would live here if we let them. It’s all very hands-on, no kid-unfriendly read-only exhibits. Science and math concepts presented as games, experiments, and crafts/building. Thousands and thousands of those little keva plank blocks to build structures higher than you. Outdoor play area (water play, life-sized whale, super-sized DNA climbing structure). Build and shoot off paper rockets. Hefty supply of Legos. Stop-motion animation. 3-D documentaries. Family-friendly cafeteria (and outside grounds) with arguably the best views in the Bay Area. Temporary exhibit changes every few months, but always enjoyed. Ample parking lot next door is $1/hr.

We brought our 14 year old grandson here because he loves planetariums and science. They really should specify on their site that this place is ideal for parents with young children up to about 10 yrs old. Everything is targeted to very young kids. They had nothing for kids over 10 that would interest them. Very disappointed that we wasted our money here. But if you have young children it would be a great place to take them.
