  • 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 pla...  read more »
  • 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 place is a great hands on museum. It is entertaining to any kids that are able to walk around themselves. Inside, there are wind tunnels that kids can put colorful styrofoam into and watch it fly. There are is an elaborate machine composed of gears, ramps, and more where each kid does a job to move balls from place to place. They love it. Outside, there is a large sand table with water running through. Kids can practice diverting the water with pipes and channels. Also, the otters are so much fun!
  • Awesome little activity center in the middle of coyote point recreation area. Was a pleasant experience, with lots of small fun things to have a hands on experience with - while having a mini animal area! A cheap 9$ entry for adults, its a smaller version of the San Francisco exploratorium!
  • I think it's awesome place for kids, even small kids will find something to do! Animals and interactive toys will keep your children for sure. I would give 6 stars if possible.
  • Really small and fun place to take your kid(s). Some great interactive activities and a small zoo. I am not a big fan of animal captivity at all, but these animals have typically been injured and can't be re-released.
  • Kids like it. Small. Some animal exhibits, some hands on science. Probably best for 4-10 year olds. You can also watch planes land at SFO.
