We had a great time! We brought our 3 year old and he loved seeing all the wonderful exibits. He said his favorite was the octopus! A close second was the white alligator. I used to come here with my parents as a child and it was great to see my child loving it as much as I did! The skip the line was great as there was a line and we saved money too. Good thing as the food was very expensive at the on site cafe. That's the only thing I would do different is bring food or plan to go somewhere else for lunch. It was good food, but not a lot of choices for a 3 year old.
A marvellous way to spend time. The planetarium show is so well done, The rain forest is fascinating. The restaurant food is varied and tasty. Just not enough time and energy to see everything.
A great museum for the whole family. Very clean and spacious. There are a lot of exhibition to see and read. The planetarium was awesome. My whole family enjoyed the movie and information given.
It was nice to skipped the lane specially with my mother in law in a weelchair. Really interesting place to visit.
California Academy of Sciences was an excellent museum. Modern with a varied collection of high quality and informative experiences including aquarium, planetarium, earthquake simulator and rain forest. Would recommend to all ages. The 'skip the line' part of our ticket was not required on the day or our visit as there were no lines!
Amazing, so many things to do, especially when you've got kids traveling with you.
We had a great time here! We didn’t have to wait to get in. We got to bypass the lines. There were so many exhibits to visit. Definitely worth the visit.
A great way to make learning fun. I had a blast here. You need to make sure you have the whole day free to go through every exhibit. I will need to come back soon.
I took five grandchildren ages 10-18 and they absolutely loved it. We spent four hours and the albino alligator and the rain forest were possibly the high points although they enjoyed everything and thanked me over and over again for the experience. Thank you for a wonderful spot. Loved seeing the old railings from the Steinhart.
Our tour was great! We got a pleasant surprise when we arrived as they announced that they would be open for an additional hour that day (we were visiting during the Christmas holiday). We would highly recommend this website to anyone wanting to visit the California Museum and surrounding museums!
It's always a pleasure to go the Academy of Science.... you always find something you missed the last time!
The place was amazing! Our children loved having so many easily accessible learning opportunities. The architecture was quite a wonder in itself…I couldn't believe that they could squeeze in a planetarium, botanical garden, and aquarium all under the same roof! We were truly blown away and spent the whole day exploring.
Cal Academy of Science is very good specially for those who are scientifically and historically oriented.
We had a great time :)
Our visit to the California Academy of Sciences was a great experience. I brought with me a 12-year-old girl and she was fascinated by the displays. We particularly appreciated the interactive features of almost all displays. We found staff helpful and willing to address our inquiries.
I strongly recommend this tour, particularly for children (of all ages)!
