It was alL air was suppose to be, a wonderful place to visit and the savings through Viator was excellent!
This is an awesome place. We went on Thursday 8/1/13, and although it was busy, not packed like a weekend. Be sure to visit the simulated earthquakes of 1906 and 1989. Interesting for locals, as well of-towners. Be sure to allow enough time, so much to see. Very well organized, and staff is pleasant and helpful. Parking was kinda weird though, you have to pay your ticket before you get into your car, not sure if the machine was not working right, but we got stuck at the exit.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Academy (Myself, wife, son and 2 teen-aged grand-sons) Especially the planetarium and rain forest.
We really enjoyed seeing all of the changes made to the academy. The ticket agents were helpful and made it very easy for us to get in. The only problem we encountered was a summer camp program was there on the day we arrived and they had bus loads of kids who were very unruly and running around so we couldn't spend the amount of time we would have liked to viewe the exhibits. I think if we were to go again, we would not choose a summer trip. The Rain Forest exhibit is amazing. Thank you for the opportunity.
I really enjoyed the new academy of science. it was incredible!! what a great experience its was for my family. The only thing I would change is the outside food stand. Hot dogs suck!
Thank you for asking,
The museum is totally one of the museums i would recomend, specially If you like interactive and educative things. It has a little of everthing, the aquarium is wonderful, a huge variety, the rainforest is amazing and the planetarium awesome! I totally recomend This museum!
There was a very long line to get in which we were able to skip, which was great being handicapped. Also, this allowed us to get the Planetarium tickets early and see many other exhibits ahead of a larger crowd. Recommend this Viator program to all who travel to busy places. The Museum was remodeled not too long ago and is an excellent place to visit for all ages. All day- flat rate parking is now available under the building which was also much easier then years ago. Must see planetarium and rain forest exhibits.
California Academy of Sciences is an amazing place to visit during San Francisco Visit.. It just beats all the Science Museum across the country. I doubt one day is sufficient to see everything there...
This is a great museum with so much to see and do. Fun for all ages!
The CAS is truly a wonderful experience. The displays are incredible and the the rain forest dome is not to be missed. Notice I did not ONCE use the word AM - -ING, to describe it... I refuse to use the most overused and inappropriately used word in the english language! Why is EVERYTHING "am - -ing"?
Too bad the CAS is overpriced for parking and food, but this is not surprising in a big city, just frustrating.
At least you get some value for your money, this is a great day of edu-tainment! And by the way - any of you reading that are under 30 years old -- When someone says "thank you", the correct response is "you're welcome", NOT "No Problem". I usually don't think it's a problem to begin with, whatever it might be that I'm thanking you for! So, DO go to visit the CAS! You will enjoy it, I'm certain.
