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.
