The Exploratorium is the new home for the internationally acclaimed museum of science and perception. Situated midway between Ferry Plaza and Fisherman’s Wharf, it has brought life to a dormant stretch of the San Francisco waterfront.
Designed to be net zero electric—one of the few museums in the country achieving this target—it utilizes the original pier building’s natural lighting and the water of the bay for heating and cooling.
Visitors will experience the full length of the 800 foot building, within which freestanding pavilions create discrete exhibition spaces. An outdoor exhibit area will give visitors the opportunity to interact with the bay to extend the exhibit concepts out into the environment beyond the site.
The new project contains museum exhibits, a shop were the exhibits are designed and made, classrooms, offices, a store, a theater, and cafes.
