Sunday was spent among 40,000 diverse, live species all under a living roof of native plants. If you have not seen the aquarium, planetarium, natural history museum, and 4-story rainforest complete with unique exhibits, you are missing out. As soon as you enter the Academy of Sciences, you hear sounds of nature echoing within the tall ceilings of the museum. The living rainforest instantly grabs your attention, just as the colors of the Philippine Coral Reef catch your eye. Walk Golden Gate Park until you reach the museum to hold bright starfish, travel the galaxy in the planetarium, and view sharks up close as they swim over you within the seaweed filled aquarium walls. Make sure to check their website for current special exhibits, ticketing information and more. Get ready for a fun filled day and visit their delicious cafe for lunch!
