Good, clean, big. Friendly staff, easy access. My kids enjoyed it. You can bring a lunch to eat in the patio, you can rent a stroller for free and they allow in and out. Parking was a little packed so I’d say don’t leave right at the end.

About California Academy of Sciences

The California Academy of Sciences, based in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, is home to a world-class aquarium, planetarium, rainforest, and natural history museum—all under one living roof. Inside one of the greenest museums in the world, visitors find exhibits and experiences that can only be seen at the Academy: including 40,000 animals living in the aquarium and live penguins in African Hall, and new exhibits throughout the year.

  • Size: There is a lot happening under the 2.5-acre living roof: walk past the massive T. Rex skeleton to see the 40,000 animals living in the aquarium, and check out the 90-foot glass dome rainforest, the 87-foot long blue whale skeleton, and more.
  • Crown Jewel: The Steinhart Aquarium, one of most biologically diverse and interactive aquariums on earth. Home to 40,000 living animals.
  • Eye Catcher: Claude, the beloved albino alligator sitting on his rock in the Swamp exhibit.
  • Giants of Land and Sea: Experience Northern California's natural wonders hands-on: guests feel their way through an immersive fog room, try to hold their balance in an earthquake room, virtually climb the top of a towering redwood tree, and examine several native specimens and fossils.
  • Don't Miss: Our colony of African Penguin as they waddle, splash, and socialize with each other.
  • Venom: Fangs, Stingrays, and Spines. Learn how scientists are studying venom to harness compounds that could hold the key to curing human disease in our newest exhibit.
  • New Exhibit: Sharks opening May 28, 2021, through January 23, 2022. Don't miss this traveling exhibition created by Grande Experiences. Learn about one of the most awe-inspiring and misunderstood creatures on the planet and the critical role sharks play in ocean ecosystems around the globe.
