"Academy of Science" California Academy Of Science Tip by rkearns

The Academy of Science just opened this year (2008) and is well worth the $26 entry fee. It rivals Monterrey Bay aquarium, with gigantic sea water tanks of fish, shark, starfish, eel, octopi, jellyfish, coral and more. You get to see underwater life, from shallow to deep, and there are interactive kiosks that will satisfy the kid in you. Such a brilliant design, the building itself is green, sustainable, maintaining its own temperature through the paneled roof. This wonder is a must-see if you visit SF.
