  • I said I went to the San Francisco science academy mainly to see the structure designed by Renzo Piano. Already that I was there I also went to visit the contents of the property including the planetarium. Of the classic planetarium there was only the structure with a huge audience but no stellar time projection with attached galaxies. What was projected all over the time with a truly spectacular result was a Google Heart-like movie zooming in on the most spectacular points like Caribbean islands or Borneo where you entered indifferently in the middle of a forest or under the sea level to fly over the reef rather than a herd of sharks. It was just missing the 3D to make it all engaging and exciting.

  • Loved it. Learned allot. Had 3 different shows today. Also love the staff :)
  • More then I expected. Tix and parking a lil expensive but what else can u expect from SF. Area around the museum was clean with plenty of space for my 7 and 5yr old 2 run around. They even had food trucks out there to enjoy if u didnt wanna eat inside the museum. The museum was clean (bathrooms ) yes. Staff was friendly . The journey thru the stars show was great but maybe 8-10min to long imo. Defenitley worth a day trip.
