Access to Coyote point gives you large playground as well as Curiodyssey. The museum itself is a bit small in my opinion

Great fun place with the kids. Well maintained with staff that know all about the animals and the exhibits with clear passions for what they do. Love it with younger kids. Great place and worth a visit. Worth mentioning if you like planes it's right under the landing pattern for SFO so a great area to see planes

Lots of hands on stuff for the young ones to manipulate, and also a small selection of animals. We saw the otters being fed when we were there; very cute!

I love going here as much as I did as a kid. Although I'm partial to the name "Coyote Point" I think CuriOdyssey is cute and sums the museum up well. Two thumbs up.

It is only 15-20 minutes drive from San Mateo. The parking is easy. The setting is nice. After playing with all the hands on toys, you can walk around the grounds. By the bay side, you can see the planes coming in to SFO one after the other. Kids get a big thrill seeing the planes coming.

Took my toddler here. It's a tiny place and we were done within an hour or so. The kid had fun looking at the birds though. Its good to kill a couple of hours with the kid. The location is nice too.

This is nice mini-zoo in San Mateo and can meet the need to see some animals without having to go all the way to SF or Oakland. Nothing special, just a small place to spend an hour.

A small manageable Zoo with a variety of wild local birds and animals! A great place to visit to entertain and educate children of all ages! They have a couple of eagles that were saved after injuries, and can be seen up close. Other beautiful birds in an outdoor setting around a small pool with turtles. A wonderful tank with... More

My grandchildren do this every summer . I find it to be the best camp around. It's very creative and fun. Children seem to love it! You definitely need to register early or you'll miss out!

Great exhibits for all ages. Keeps the young one interested in learning and doing. Such a wide variety of science educational things. Great animal habitats viewed both inside and out. Children were having a lot of fun!
