On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, after lunch at Abigail's, the Barays took us to the Exploratorium, a hands-on science, nature, art, and technology museum where young and old can get lost among over 650 exhibits. Within the walls of San Francisco's landmark Palace of Fine Art, the Exploratorium is a place where you can spend countless hours being a kid again, where your mind gets to be set free, where adults can revert back to the time where they questioned things.
You walk in and you notice all these crumpled up pieces of paper that make up some interesting art:
I can appreciate the exhibits that challenge the way you think, that make you step outside of yourself, like this piano exhibit:
Something interesting to read:
The cabinet of cuteness:
The superstition obstacle course:
I liked reading about people's own superstitions...
though I'm not sure if these were appropriate, they were funny...
Mood lighting exhibit, where the lighting would change color and make you do wacky poses...who is that weirdo?
Sammy having some fun...
Of course, not everyone was enjoying the exhibits...hey, to each his own! Perhaps this was an exhibit simulating sleep!
Some other cool displays:
Overall, it was a great way to spend a few hours. I started to miss the sunlight and I got pretty exhausted jumping from exhibit to exhibit but I was happy I could experience one of the best, most interactive, hands-on museums I have ever been to.
