According to the New York Times, The Exploratorium "remains the most important science museum to have opened since the mid-20th century because of the nature of its exhibits [and] its wide-ranging influence." The museum offers a unique, immersive experience and is a premiere San Francisco attraction.
When the museum moved to Pier 15 in 2013, they were tasked with turning a historical finger pier into a LEED Platinum building. The new facilities include radiant heating and cooling using a bay water heat exchange system, a rainwater reuse system, and a 1.3mw PV system.
On this tour, the museum Facilities Director will walk us through the building’s green features and show us the mechanical room. After that, the tour attendees will join the "After Dark" museum crowd and explore the exhibits on their own. "After Dark" is an adults-only (18+) museum event with drinks and music.
Organized by NorCal Solar, a San Francisco area nonprofit organization and a partner of Intersolar North America.
