What people are saying about Exploratorium

I’m handicapped and the big bus was wonderful to hop off take pictures hop back on. We missed the last bus , but was willing to take us close enough to our car in China town. Wonderful memories

It was excellent since as we were 5 people the individual tickets would have been much more expensive. In addition, the orientation of the important places to see and visit was very useful.

We got to enjoy several of the events and venues on the pass. The adults and the kids all enjoyed the vacation. It was an excellent savings and purchase.

It was a really great experience the aquarium was fantastic and so was the boat tour

Very good option when you plan on visiting different places
