Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the California Academy of Sciences is the world’s only aquarium, planetarium, rainforest, and natural history museum all housed under one incredible living roof. There’s something for someone of every age to enjoy. With hands-on exhibitions, shows, and public programs, you’re in for an action-packed science adventure.

Plunge into the world’s deepest living indoor coral reef, home to nearly 40,000 live animals, representing more than 900 unique species. Meet the newest African penguin chicks, Pogo and Ozzie and the rest of the colony of playful penguins in African Hall. Then pay a visit to the iconic alligator with albinism, Claude.

Catch the latest immersive show in the 75-foot planetarium, taking you on a spectacular journey to the far reaches of the universe, featuring different themes at varying times throughout the day. Step inside a lush, four-story rainforest teeming with life – from free-flying birds to exotic reptiles, amphibians, and more. Investigate hundreds of specimens and dabble in hands-on activities for children and adults alike in the Naturalist Center.

The adventure continues outside with unique rooftop views on the 2.5-acre living roof. Then, take an opportunity to activate your child’s curiosity about the natural world in our outdoor nature play and exploration space, Wander Woods.
