  • I’m a wedding coordinator who had a wedding at CuriOdyssey. This is a very beautiful place for a unforgettable wedding. The view of the bay is amazing! All of our guests, including bride and groom— were impressed with the ambiance here. I would recommend CuriOdyssey to our couples.
  • I love the animal exhibits but there's not much else to do unless you're a little kid. The animals are beautiful and very well taken care of. This place reminds me of Lindsay Wildlife Museum in Walnut Creek. The kids exhibits are science oriented, and mostly involve physics tricks. I thought they were fun, well-thought out and engaging. My only concern is the entrance fee is not merely the $8-$9 per adult, but it costs money to merely park a car in Coyote Point recreation area ($6.25). The museum is inside Coyote Point Recreation Area. Keep this in mind, unless you go by some other means of transportation. Take a few hours when you go, and check out the Marina below.
  • I loved this place so much, I decided to have my wedding here. The event planner was fantastic as well as the cashiers at the front. Everyone was so friendly, I was extremely pleased! The animals ere so darn cute 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!
  • 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.
