An entire universe lives and breathes within the California Academy of Sciences, where a single living roof covers an aquarium, a planetarium, a rainforest, a natural history museum, and more. Yet if you glanced at the building in Golden Gate Park, it would be easy to miss the Academy entirely. That's because hills and fields cover 87 percent of its living rooftop, which gives a home to local wildlife, keeps the academy green, and upholds its mission to explore, explain, and sustain life on Earth.

  • Size: 40,000 animals live in the aquarium, the Rainforest - a 90-foot glass dome open-air rainforest, and the museum houses both an 87-foot long blue whale skeleton and a massive T. rex?and that's still just a small part of the story
  • Crown Jewel: Green hills and fields cover 87% of the rooftop to create the Living Roof, a home for local wildlife
  • Eye Catcher: A giant window looks in on the Philippine Coral Reef's 212,000-gallon tank filled with live coral and over 2,000 colorful fish
  • Hands-On Exhibits: Touch sea urchins in a Discovery Tidepool and feel the Great San Francisco quake of 1906 inside the Shake House
  • Don't Miss: The Naturalist Center, where you can explore hundreds of specimens such as a foot-long mammoth tooth
  • Planetarium: Experience the cosmos like never before when the planetarium premieres "Habitat Earth" on January 16th, a show about biodiversity on Earth
  • Free with Daily Admission: Coral Reef Dive, Ssssnake Encounter, Quest for Curiosities, Swamp Discovery, and more

When Segways were introduced in 2001, the developers claimed they would reconfigure cities. San Francisco promptly banned them from sidewalks, but has permitted their use on trails and in bike lanes, which means they thrive in Golden Gate Park. Leading the charge is Segway SF Bay, the best of a bunch of Segway rental points located in, or near, the park. There’s perhaps no more thorough way to see every cranny of the park’s 1,000 acres, from the Buffalo Paddock to the Rhododendron Dell, than from atop one of Segway SF’s rides. Their Central Sunset shop, just outside the park, outfits riders with everything they could need, including safety gear and plenty of instruction before cruising away. And for any local who’s simply curious about the contraptions, Segway SF Bay offers free first-time lessons.
