Wednesday was the Exploratorium Day for the kids. The late night at the game the night before precluded getting an early start so they left here about 10:30 am and picked up Grandma Gloria, Jim's Mom. The first stop was Treasure Island! We always love taking photos from here as you may know.
By the time they arrived in San Francisco it was time for lunch so they planned a stop at our favorite Pizzeria. Pasquale's on 8th and Irving.
"This is for you, Gramma! Ah, thanks Zachary!"
The Exploratorium is a very unique Hands-On Science Museum created 40 years ago by Frank Oppenheimer. They just recently moved to a new location on the Emarcadero, in the City. It is a very unique place and the short video below explains their mission and a little more about it. This is a great learning experience for all ages. It exemplifies what I always say when I teach genealogy. " If you want to learn you have to put your hands on it!" http://bcove.me/q34x7nq2

Guess which venue I like better? Yep, The Palace. However, this venue is so much nicer inside. And from the back you can sit out and look at the Bay. So it is progress, right? Here are a few shots from their website.
Obviously a good decision has been made
