UC Berkley's Lawrence Hall of Science is a great place for a child to learn while still having a blast.

We have been to the Lawrence Hall of Science twice this month, that's how much my toddler loves this place. In particular he loves the nano matters exhibit, the wind powere and windmill section, the lab, etc.

So much fun for the kids - lots of fun and interesting things to do, and plenty of indoor and outdoor space to run around.

I had never heard of the Lawrence Hall before the groupon. It is really fun adults and kids, and prices for tickets, movies, and food were excellent. This is a great outing for families, and I am sure I will be returning. :)

Most of the staff that my family and I encountered were college students who didnt seem interested at all in explaining the exhibits to us. They spoke amonst themselves. In particular it was the Build your own truck exhibit, the Flying items through a tube exhibit, the Animation exhibit and Build your own shoe exhibit. This was our first time here and I dont think we will be back. I explained this to the young girl at the CSV desk and she just handed me a Visitors guide brochure!

We loved the great view of the Bay Area and the outdoor exploration garden. Very well done.

From Our Editors

Established in 1968 in honor of Ernest Orlando Lawrence, UC Berkeley's first Nobel laureate, The Lawrence Hall of Science aims to inspire the scientists and innovators of the future. Their hands-on exhibits allow children and adults to see and touch a fascinating variety of displays and projects. The animated, interactive Science On a Sphere globe, for example, uses actual scientific data to depict the expanding wave patterns of tsunamis and the surface of Mars. To learn more about seismic activity, guests head to the Forces That Shape the Bay outdoor park to explore erosion and the geology of the Bay Area. Kids can climb atop a life-size model whale or through the double helix of a huge DNA sculpture, or work with UC Berkeley students and staff to design and build a prototype in the Ingenuity Lab.

The museum also sparks imaginations with an interactive planetarium and the National Geographic 3D Theater. Its affiliation with the university makes it an ideal spot for educational camps and classes, as well as community events, including a robotics competition.
