Exploratorium Community Free Days | 2019

The Exploratorium is a twenty-first-century learning laboratory, an eye-opening, always-changing, playful place to explore and tinker featuring hundreds of science, art, and human perception exhibits.

While they don’t have monthly community days, they do host several special events throughout the year offering “pay-what-you-can” admission for all.

The Exploratorium celebrates Mother’s Day with a special free admission day for all.

Happy Mother’s Day from The Exploratorium. To celebrate, they’re hosting Día de las Madres. All mothers—and especially Mamás latinas—and their families are invited to a day of fun at the Exploratorium. To honor this special day, they will offer bilingual programming for moms. Enjoy fabulous performances of folklórico dances and a mariachi concert serenading mothers, and make paper flowers as gifts.

Please note that admission is Pay-What-You-Wish on Community Days, and museum entry is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Entry is subject to capacity; admission is not guaranteed.
