California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco

The California Academy of Sciences is an absolutely stunning museum and an excellent place to take your children.

The California Academy of Sciences is an absolutely stunning museum and an excellent place to take your children. Among the many highlights of this museum is the building itself - ride the elevator to the top to see the Living Roof, a literal green roof and marvel of architecture with soft mounds covered in grass and flowers. On the ground floor are numerous interactive science exhibits, outdoor gardens, and an aviary. Towering over the massive exhibit halls is the sphere-like Planetarium on one side of the building, while the other side is overshadowed by the domed 'Rainforests of the World' exhibit, a massive transparent dome which contains a winding pathway that takes you to the top of a living rainforest, past towering trees and animal displays. The building also contains a fantastic aquarium on the bottom floor, which showcases the more unusual sea life such as octopus, jellyfish, sea dragons, and sea stars among its displays of coral reefs, kelp forests, and tidepools.
