  • Thoughtfully considered play environment for kids. Lots of fun for all ages. Rotating exhibits, with tasty food options for both adults and children.
  • 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. I have a great cafeteria with organic and healthy foods available.
  • The place is somewhat small. Seems to be catered for younger kids. The view of the golden gate bridge from here is great though.
  • YES! for kids! perfect! not sure how to describe this place, but my kids love it so much that they forget that i exist! which mean i get to be bored enjoy coffee and check facebook while they play!
  • My son loves that place.Whenever we are in town we go there.Make sure to bring warm clothes and also extra clothes because they have a water area for the little ones
