Once in Golden Gate Park you get to explore the multi-billion dollar California Academy of Sciences.  It’s the only place on Earth to house an Aquarium, Planetarium, and Natural history museum―all under one Living roof. One ticket is all you need to explore it all.

From the splashing penguins in African Hall to the wildflowers on the roof, the building is bursting with life. A four-story living rainforest and awe-inspiring coral reef ecosystem showcase Earth’s biodiversity, while immersive planetarium shows offer a new perspective on the planet we call home.

Experience Northern California through an immersive fog room, an earthquake simulator, and a virtual ascension to the top of a redwood tree in Giants of Land and Sea.

Step inside the lush, four-story Osher Rainforest that's teeming with life, and explore African landscapes and animals at the Kimball Natural History Museum

Take to the skies or dive into the depths of the sea without leaving your seat in the Morrison Planetarium

From the largest living coral reef tank in the world to the dark depths of Twilight Zone: Deep Reefs Revealed, unique wonders are in every corner of the Steinhart Aquarium.

Marvel at jewels and geologic specimens in Gems and Minerals: Unearthed

Grab a bite to eat at the Academy Cafe or The Terrace Restaurant

It is an enlightening life time experience and a fun place for the entire family!
