Join us for our first-ever 4th of July celebration at the Hall, and enjoy your exclusive access to the best view of fireworks launched from around the entire Bay Area. Celebrate Independence Day with us for an evening of food, live music, and, of course, science!
Hands-on Science Exhibits and Activities
The science center will be open, including access to all your favorite exhibits at the Hall. Experience Dinosaurs in Motion; explore the Solar System and beyond in Sun, Earth, Universe; and more! Enjoy special 4th of July-themed, hands-on activities, too!
Flames, Flares, and Explosions (30-minute interactive science show)
Get in the spirit of our national holiday and participate in action-packed (and safe!) experiments in this interactive science show. Learn about early fire-making tools, and observe how various fuels ignite. Stay for the grand finale, because this show ends with a really big bang!
Superpower Dogs (40-minute movie)
Experience the live-saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world's most remarkable dogs. As we discover the astonishing science behind their amazing abilities, we’ll never look at our best friends the same way again!
Celebrate the 4th of July with a musical bang, as well!
The Firecracker Brass Quintet - featuring musicians who regularly perform with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra and other Bay Area ensembles - will be playing music throughout the evening. Enjoy the explosive, colorful sounds of brass accompanying fireworks over the bay.
Between the live performances, we’ll be Dancing with Dinos! Join us!
From the Hall, we expect to be able to see fireworks from San Francisco, the Berkeley Marina, and even the North Bay. The start times for fireworks from these locations vary, but we expect them to begin at around 9:15 to 9:30 p.m.
If the Bay Area happens to be foggy on July 4th, we will be streaming fireworks shows from locations that haven't been fogged in!
Please note the information at the weblink on road closure between 7:00 and 10:00.
