My boys are always up for exploring a neat museum, so we spent our 3rd full day on the bay at the California Academy of Sciences. This amazing place is an aquarium, rainforest, planetarium, and natural sciences museum all rolled into one.

We were all blown away with how much cool stuff there was to see. There was an entire rainforest inside the museum, where you walked around the perimeter and explored every level of the ecosystem. They had an impressive aquarium and a cool exhibit on earthquakes the boys loved. I really enjoyed the show I caught in the planetarium and would have loved to see several more, if there was time. Even the massive building’s living roof was awesome to check out.

If you are ever in the San Francisco area, I can’t recommend seeing the California Academy of Sciences enough!
