“Good stop”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Nice museum and the earthquake house is great, but not a lot of interactives and everything good costs a LOT of extra (the sub, Body Wars, etc). Gunther's Body Wars is currently there and actually IS worth the money; astounding exhibit but about to leave.

“Wonderful exhibits”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

We were there over 6 hours and didn't see it all. The Body World exhibit was really good and Omnimax Theater too. Lots for kids to do - plan on making it a full day. The restaurant is also very good.

Lots of great exhibits that frequently change. It is worth a visit. Cool old submarine tied up to dock. Call ahead to check exhibits and when sub is open.
