What an excellent place — and what a stunning view! I could have spent all day in their outdoor area. As a UC Berkeley employee, I got in here for free, and my son did as well because he’s less than 3 years old. He was quite entertained by many of the exhibits, and it’s great to know that we can keep bringing him here as he gets older!

🎉 On December 31, take part in scientific celebrations for the new year including a balloon drop at 2pm. Included with your admission.
