San Francisco is a truly amazing place to call “Home”.  There is something for everybody no matter what your interests or passions may be.  One of the advantages to living in an international city is the easy access to world-class amenities - literally at your doorstep.  When you are looking to explore the Embarcadero, explore The Exploratorium, a place where dream come alive, and where you are encouraged to discover.

The Exploratorium recently moved from the Marina District and is now housed in an impressive new facility at Pier 15 – just 1.5 miles from our door, making access that much easier for all who which to visit.  The new facility is three times as large as their previous location, with 1.5 acres of free outdoor space and easy access from all Bay Area public transit (just 19 minutes by light rail from Fairmont Heritage Place).  Our new waterfront neighbor is now open, and has been in the spotlight ever since!

“…in the Exploratorium's shiny new space, the experience is just as much for adults as it is for children.” Read more: San Francisco's Exploratorium opens in sparkling new home

The New York Times says: In New Home, Exploratorium Widens Its Interactive Appeal
