Come curious, leave connected! Explore an Aquarium, Rainforest, Planetarium, and Natural History Museum all in one day at the California Academy of Sciences. Meet Claude the Albino Alligator, hang out with the African Penguin colony, and the 38,000 other live animals. Designed by award-winning architect Renzo Piano, located in the center of beautiful Golden Gate Park, the Academy will inspire lifelong curiosity for the natural world as you experience the depths of a Philippine coral reef, climb into the canopy of a Costa Rican rainforest and fly to the outer reaches of the Universe. Let the experience begin!
