The Exploratorium, San Francisco’s famous hands-on science museum, is moving to a new location on the Embarcadero. We got to follow along as employees packed up exhibits in the old location at the Palace of Fine Arts near the Golden Gate Bridge, and began to settle into their new spot at Pier 15. It’s scheduled to reopen April 17.
Exhibits in the Bay Observatory emphasize the world around the museum, like this “landscape scope,” an iPhone mounted on a spotting scope typically used by birders, that brings the Bay Bridge up close. (Jenny Oh/KQED)
