SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — After being located at the Palace of Fine Arts for more than 40 years, the Exploratorium is set to reopen at its new location along San Francisco’s Embarcadero on April 17th.
KCBS and KPIX 5 were given a sneak preview of the new facility at Pier 15, which boasts more than 600 exhibits on science and technology for kids and adults to enjoy.
“This is huge. It’s three times the square footage of the previous campus. So we have 600 exhibits and 150 new ones,” said Paul Doherty a co-director and staff physicist at The Exploratorium.
