Daly City, CA, United States
21 Kudos
The California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco is a pretty cool science center with many interactive exhibits. It is a planetarium, aquarium, and natural history museum in one place. One of the coolest features is the Earthquake experience with allows you to stand in a room which shakes. You'll get to feel and see the difference between the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes in San Francisco. As someone who remembers how rough and long the 1989 earthquake was, it was shocking to see how much more the 1906 earthquake shook the city. The butterfly dome is also a fun activity with a high likelihood of a butterfly landing on you.
