My 4 year old had a great time with the stop motion animation studio and the outdoor play area. Parking can be a challenge but still a fun afternoon place to visit.

We came here a couple of times with my 4-year-old. On two occasions we rode the carousel only. On a rainy day we went to the museum itself and my daughter had an excellent time for a few hours. We didn't explore the entire museum,...More

Travelled to San Francisco with wife and children (boys aged 1 and 3). This place was fantastic. Not too crowded, amazing range of creative play activities. It was a highlight for our 3 year old. Definitely worth a visit if you have children.

I've been here before but I think they have added to the facility. Seems like much more, or at least better, than before. Great venue for kids to try new things - from simple drawing to robotic programming. Staff very nice and helpful. Often crowded...More

find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
