Loved the aquarium and the butterfly and bird attractions. The flow of the building and attractions was seamless. Stayed for hours!

A totally fabulous place - something for everyone!! We bought tickets with no expectation and it exceeded at every point !! We were visiting from the uk and would say it’s a mix of an aquarium, natural history museum, a rainforest with a bit of theme park thrown in. You can wander and wonder around at your own speed, take your own drinks/lunch if you wish to save pennies although there are two very nice cafe/restaurants with a large selection of drinks, snacks, fruit, salads, sandwiches and cooked selection Can easily spend all day here.

A very well presented and thought-provoking experience. From the humidity and wonder of the rainforest to the amazing show in the planetarium, this was a real treat for the senses. The aquarium was breath-taking and the variety of species on show around the numerous subterranean exhibits is impressive. There is a night time show for adults only and while I’m not keen on others’ unruly offspring behaving badly, their random squealing didn’t lessen the enjoyment. In fact, one six year-old in the planetarium was unpretentiously giving the presenter a run for their money by shouting out all the answers to probably rhetorical questions, which was quite charming.

Used our City Pass to visit, had a good 3 hours looking around. Worth a visit for all ages. The talk shows are well worth going to see.

An absolutely amazing experience. We decided to visit the museum on our family vacation to SF, and it exceeded our expectations. The aquarium exhibits were phenomenal, and the number of different species was impressive. The swamp/rainforest display was also excellent. Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about this place. We spend 3.5 hours there and wished we had come earlier in the day. We watched shows in the planetarium, checked out the history museum and interactive natural science library. It was all amazing. I would highly recommend this for any family visiting the SF area. The museum has so much to see and do for every age group. My family and I will definitely be back.

Great way to spend a day. Kids enjoyed rainforest, aquarium and planetarium. The bugs/insects exhibit less so.

Top flight museum. Kept a young adult fascinated for half a day! The planetarium and the aquarium are can’t-miss. And as a rock hound, the gem display was amazing!

excellent place, it takes several hours to enjoy it quietly, getting there by public transport is very easy as well as using a bicycle
