Some friends of mine invited me to the "friends and family" private opening of the new (and greatly expanded) Exploratorium a few weeks ago. Recently moved to its new location on the Embarcadero of San Francisco, close to the other tourist attractions like The Ferry Building, Pier 29 and Fisherman's Wharf, the new location take up an entire former pier, in a beautifully renovated building, and is filled with every kind of scientific demonstration and exhibit that you could imagine. It's stimulation for the mind and the eye that is unparalleled. Great for the whole family because there are exhibits for adults and children, plus a great restaurant for when you get hungry (that serves healthy food, not the usual fast food available at tourist attractions). You can spend a few hours or a whole day. There is so much to see and do. Plus they have a wonderful new film theater where all sorts of media is on display.
