We are open! On April 17, 2013, the Exploratorium reopened at Pier 15 in San Francisco. In celebration of our big reopening Obscura Digital enveloped our new home in stunning animation, two nights in a row, April 17 and 18.

At our new campus we have tripled our size. We now have 330,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor gallery areas, including 1.5 acres of free-access civic space. With 150 brand new exhibits, over 600 total, three times the capacity for teacher training, four times the space for meetings, workshops, and camps, and the benefit of being accessible from every direction by public transit, our educational reach will dramatically increase. We are located a short 10- to 15-minute walk from San Francisco’s Ferry Building.
