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)!
The Academy of Science was fantastic! So much cool stuff to see. From rainforest to reefs to the planetarium which is a must see. Would be fantastic for children. Definately reserve at least half a day.
went with my three grandsons and had a great time even with the overwhelming crowd......it was stupendous
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.
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,
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.
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.
This is a great museum with so much to see and do. Fun for all ages!
