What people are saying:

This was a great experience to be able to see very beautiful tropical rainforest ( great). There are a lot of trees, plants and lots of wildlife ( specimens) in the rainforest. And leaf cutter ants are by far the most interesting item I have seen! Also go experience great earthquake experience ( simulated) and well worth seeing. The aquarium inside was great too! An experience not to be missed!

Additional Information

Introduction

Located in the center of Golden Gate Park, the recently opened California Academy of Arts and Sciences is one of the city's gems. Designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, the Academy's roof is made of grass and sculpted to look like the park's rolling hills had been lifted up and the Academy slipped underneath. Beneath the roof, the Academy houses a full-scale aquarium, a natural history museum and a planetarium. Great for kids, there is enough to see here for a full day.
