This is a great place for events and trade shows. The view of the bay is outstanding. The facilities are functional if not upscale. Perhaps if they would make some cosmetic and restroom upgrades they could attract more events.

The Lawrence Hall of Science was so much better with a similar exhibit. It was overcrowded, over priced, dirty and no attention to detail. Low quality, high price. Go to the park. The venue itself is great.

This is a great place for almost any type of event. The building and location are stunning! It's the old ford assembly plant with high ceilings, walls of glass and views of San francisco. For some events they even run a small ferry from SF....More
