Exhibit Experiences

Animal Investigations

Visit our animals—including iguanas, chinchillas, and the insect zoo—and find out how they have adapted to their environments. Learn what they eat, where they live, and how they move.

Science Today

Find out what scientists at UC Berkeley and around the world are working on—right now. View nanoparticles under an electron microscope, and watch climate change unfold in real time via a 3-D digital projection of the Earth.

Design, Build, Test

Team up with Cal Engineering students to tackle a design challenge—a bridge, kinetic sculpture, scribbling machine—then build a prototype and test it. Wooden blocks and a gravity wall keep young designers busy.

Earth and Space

Stargaze in our planetarium, or climb through an 18-foot granite sunstone that tracks the position of the Earth in space. Observe actual weather patterns and city lights on a six-foot-diameter, 3-D digital projection of our planet.

Touch, Climb, and Crawl

Stack and connect massive foam blocks and shapes. Crawl through a kaleidoscope, assemble a track on the gravity wall, or scale the back of a life-sized model fin whale.

The Bay Area and Beyond

Experience small-scale versions of the geologic forces that have shaped the Bay Area. Ride an earthquake simulator, set erosion in motion at our hands-on erosion tables, and check out the Bay with powerful telescopes.

Puzzles and Brain Teasers

Enjoy math games from all over the world. Try a hexagonal board game from Denmark, a 4,000-year-old Chinese number puzzle, a pattern game from the Congo, and more. presents here one of the many museum pages.
