San Francisco is famous for its vibrant science and culture museums, but this popularity often comes with swarms of tourists and sky-high admission prices. However, there’s another environment to enjoy these museums — after dark. Almost all major San Francisco museums have added after-hours, adults-only events on select nights for a reduced entry fee, adding live music, special movie screenings, and alcohol to their usual exhibits.
Experience the Exploratorium After Dark for adults 18 and over on the first Thursday of each month. Each monthly event showcases a different theme with opportunities for attendees to have a whirl at hundreds of hands-on exhibits. The Exploratorium is located on the waterfront Embarcadero, with the museum itself modern, open, and spacious. Walking to the back past the exhibits, attendees will find trendy bar/restaurant, SeaGlass. Enjoy fresh Mahi Mahi tacos and wash them down with an expansive selection of reasonably priced drinks. Be sure to check out the Landscape Gallery with a fog machine, cloud chamber, and rift machine.
