  • One of the best children's activity centers in the Bay Area. They have rotating artists in residence, several buildings worth of interactive activities, 3D printer building, a huge outdoor area with sunken ships to explore. My favorite exhibit is the Bay Area activity building with a fishing boat, cranes like the Port of Oakland, and train sets. They have a great cafeteria with organic and healthy foods available.
  • Lots of great learning activities both indoor and out for kids 4 and older. Not with the drive from Sacramento for me at the time.
  • We took our two year old here for a day trip and had a great time. There are lots of hand-on exhibits and they have a special area called the ‘tot-spot’ which was perfect for our little guy. Tunnels to crawl through, trees, and a pool where they can play in a the shallow stream. But bring an extra set of clothes for your little one because they are going to have a blast and get wet for sure! There is also a small café and the view of the Golden Gate Bridge made for some great family photos.
  • Great for all ages 1 to 5. Variety, innovative and creative place to blow a few hours and reconnect with your kid. Beautiful relaxing seeing with tons of hidden surprises.
  • Had a great time on a rainy day this past Saturday. Lived here most of our lives and we had never been. We arrived at about 11:30 with our 8 yo dd. From the parking lot we couldn't believe the breathtaking view of the bay and golden gate Bridge. Took some pics of course. Went inside and didn't wait for tickets at all. The cashier we very nice. The total for the 3 of us was $41. Was not crowded at all I'm thinking due to the rain. There was an awesome sing along with Jimbo Trout in the auditorium that we listed to a bit first. Super silly fun songs. Then did several arts and crafts and hands on learning activities. In front of each building is a different musical instrument which we stopped at along the way which was super fun. They also had indoor non ice skating which was pretty neat. Basically you skate on plastic interlocking tiles. Then we headed to the play structure which was neat with a sunken ship, a little fishing boat and a few other attractions. Overall we had a lovely time and all the while had amazing view of the bridge and bay. Can't wait to go again on a sunny day!
