Our grandchildren loved CuriOdyssey. There are many 'hands on' activities that kept them occupied for a long time. The small zoo area was fun, too. They loved the fox, otters and raccoon.

There is a good mix of animals and science exhibits here. Nice setting in San Mateo with all the eucalyptus trees surrounding it. Terrific for kids 2-6.

Loved taking our Grandson there as he explored science, we were equally moved into the excitement and exploration. A good way to involve all family members in why, how and what they saw, did and the wonders of science in the world around us.

This is a fun hands-on science museum and zoo, for small kids. Note: Both are very small, so a few hours would be perfect. It's in a great location too with fun hiking and views of jet airplanes landing at San Francisco airport.
