The Exploratorium is an eye-opening, playful place to explore how the world works. Our exhibits, experiences, tools, and projects ignite curiosity and lead to profound learning.
The Exploratorium stands in the vanguard of the movement of the 'museum as educational center.' It provides access to, and information about, science, nature, art, and technology.
This unique museum was founded in 1969 by noted physicist and educator Dr. Frank Oppenheimer, who devoted his efforts to it-and was its director-until his death in 1985. From 1991 until 2005, the museum was led by renowned French scientist and educator Dr. Goéry Delacôte. In May 2006, nationally known science education and policy expert Dr. Dennis M. Bartels was named Executive Director.
