information about Exploratorium
Housed within the walls of San Francisco’s landmark Palace of Fine Arts, the Exploratorium is a collage of over 600 interactive exhibits in the areas of science, art, and human perception. The Exploratorium stands in the vanguard of the movement of the “museum as educational center.” It provides access to, and information about, science, nature, art, and technology. This unique museum was founded in 1969 by noted physicist and educator Dr. Frank Oppenheimer, who devoted his efforts to it—and was its director—until his death in 1985. Dr. Goéry Delacôte, a renowned French scientist, science educator, and public servant, was named executive director of the Exploratorium in February 1991.
