After Dark: See for Yourself

Spark your curiosity at After Dark! As the Sun sets, we’ll hit the rainbow lights, turn the music up, and open our doors, inviting you to take your imagination out to play. Fuel up with a cocktail and prepare to roam free. Plus, excavate underground histories and discover the past with the team behind San Francisco’s Buried History, a new project from the Exploratorium.

Cell Phone Miniscope
6:00 - 10:00 p.m.

We invite you to open your eyes to the amazing world of the ultra-tiny! Be sure to grab a miniscope kit and directions - then convert your cell phone into a portable, picture-taking miniscope using a simple plastic lens from a laser pointer. Use it to see the Exploratorium at its smallest scale, then take it home to continue exploring new environments!

San Francisco’s Buried History
6:30 - 9:30 p.m.
Osher Gallery 1

Uncover the history beneath our feet! Join the team behind the Exploratorium’s Buried History project to discover San Francisco’s hidden past. You’ll learn more about this new online audio walking tour, which uses interviews, photos, and augmented reality to showcase amazing underground sites in downtown San Francisco. Each of these sites provides fascinating clues about how human activity impacted the local landscape over time, and teaches us more about the people who used to live in the area. What stories will you unearth?
