California Academy of Sciences

Learn about life on Earth through engaging exhibits.

An exterior view of the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco

Since it opened its doors in September 2008, the Academy of Sciences has been a must-visit for both locals and tourists. Highlights include the gorgeous — and green — design by renowned architect Renzo Piano, and interactive exhibits ranging from aquariums (where you won’t want to miss the albino alligator) to a walk-through rain forest to a planetarium show narrated by actor George Takei to a unique "living roof." Allow a few hours to see it all, and if you feel like a kid again, don’t worry: That’s one of the best parts of visiting.
