Went on a suggestion and I wasn't disappointed. Great venue. Went for a night live event and it was fantastic. Exhibits were well done and the interactive ones were very good. If in Golden Gate Park this is definitely a stop.

I would recommend calling the Academy's General Inquiries line. If you scroll to the bottom of their main website and click contact the telephone # and email address is in the bottom part of the Contact page.
