California Academy of Sciences
As the Bay Area’s leading cultural institution dedicated to opening our doors to the entire community, we’re proud to offer a variety of free and reduced admission opportunities and access programs that bring the wonders of science and the natural world to life for over 330,000 visitors each year. By lowering barriers to entry—whether cost, access, language, or culture—we’re creating an Academy for All.
Come face-to-fin with 900+ animal species, hands-on exhibits, and the world’s largest living indoor coral reef.
Step inside a living four-story rainforest, home to free-flying tropical butterflies and birds.
Dive into the breathtaking beauty of coral reefs in the Academy's newest original planetarium show.
The Academy transforms after dark with live music, cocktails, and a different theme every week for adults 21+.
