  • Very hands on and engaging. The kids (5, 10, 11, 12) asked to come back before we even made it out of the entrance. 
  • Learn, demystify the science, including discovery of Lawrence. And even small children who can enjoy the family-recommended. It might be better Café in ate lunch with good enough.

  • A wonderful place to take elementary and middle-school children. Fabulous views of the bay. Tilden park is right behind you for hiking opportunities and other fun. 
  • Wonderful place in a lot of ways. Outside, spectacular panoramic view of Berkeley and the Bay, plus whale and DNA climbing structures. Inside, highly engaging displays on a wide range of natural and scientific discoveries. You can touch, twist, bang, pull, or otherwise get mano-a-mano with many of the exhibits. It's a favorite place for weddings and for kids' birthday parties.
  • Wonderful hands on educational exhibits which appeal to both children and adults. Movie in intimate planetarium. Some of the young staff members could be more involved with the attendees.
  • We didn't do the 3D movie or Planetarium, but the rest of the place was amazing. Definitely geared more toward space and Maker culture, but the kid's had a blast.
  • Great place for children, many staffers to give information or assist. Many games and activities. Best small museum I have been to. Great view of Bay Area
  • So much interesting kid tech and science. They don't even know how complex thinga they are doing just playing around.
