With the ever shifting boundaries between humans and wildlife in the Bay Area, the daily routine for many has it's challenges and rewards for all involved. Based on biological studies and direct experiences, we focus on a few of our favorite neighboring species who interact with us humans, and our way of life, in more ways than you may think.

Urban environments like San Francisco are full of mysterious natural and human-made phenomena. Why are there so many one-footed pigeons? Where does the sewage go? Why is our "summer" in May and September? The Exploratorium is "taking it outside" to explore these and other questions in engineering, ecology, optics, waves, geology, architecture, weather, and more. Look for new episodes on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, at 3pm PST.
How are creative investigations sparked? What does a state of inspiration feel like? Can inspiration be transmitted from person to person? Join us for an audio slide show series that explores the fascinating world of how we work creatively, and presents the human stories behind creative accomplishments.
The Exploratorium has a long history of exploring topics in Astronomy and Space- through live webcasts, produced videos, films, lectures, and other programs. Please enjoy a few of our favorites from the collection.
Hear a musical instrument made from penguin bones. Learn how remixed sound samples can form the backdrop for a lounge act. Discover songs composed from the frequencies of starlight.
Explore distant realms of musical possibility with Resonance, a new evening series at the Exploratorium. Contemporary musicians and sound artists will perform new works and discuss their ideas, techniques, and inspirations with radio host and pianist Sarah Cahill.
Resonance performances will be held in the Exploratorium’s new Kanbar Forum, and enlivened by its state-of-the-art, 72-channel Meyer Sound Constellation sound system, providing the audience with an intimate experience of each event’s sonic details.
Explainers are students from the Bay Area and from around the world who come together to participate in a teaching and learning experience at the Exploratorium— a museum of science, art, and human perception. Explainers learn exhibits, facilitate visitor-exhibit interaction and support general museum operations.
