Exploratorium - Annual Free Days

Free Days and Reduced Rates
Five annual free days are just one way the Exploratorium remains accessible to everyone, regardless of a person’s ability to pay the cost of admission. We’ve partnered with several local companies, libraries, and community-based organizations to expand access.

Annual Free Days
