California Academy of Sciences (indoor)
Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
From the humblest of origins — a dark evening in 1853 when seven men assembled in a candle-lit room to found the first scientific academy west of the Atlantic seaboard — the California Academy of Sciences has grown to become one of San Francisco’s most popular destinations. Not that it hasn’t taken its hits over the years! After the Great Quake of 1906 struck the city, the museum and all but a handful of specimens were lost. Then, in 1989, nature again took its toll in the form of the Loma Prieta earthquake. Major structural damage left the Academy in need of another beginning. The Academy’s newest home, nearly 10 years and $500 million dollars in the making, opened on September 27, 2008 to near universal acclaim. With its state-of-the-art aquarium and planetarium, its natural history museum, 4-story rainforest, 3D theater, two restaurants, and roof terrace, the Academy takes its place among the greatest natural history museums in the world. During your treasure hunt, you’ll see it all, from downstairs aquarium to rooftop solar panels. Enjoy this unique way of experiencing San Francisco hottest attraction. An IDEAL INDOOR HUNT LOCATION for inclement weather, especially on those cold and foggy City days, both winter and summer.
