Why you need to take a trip to the California Academy of Sciences!


There is one place on the planet where you can visit an aquarium, planetarium and natural history museum all in one trip.

On this week’s episode, Monique Soltani takes us inside the California Academy of Sciences – located right in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park – where the exhibits literally come to life.

With over 40,00 animals, the California Academy of Sciences is home to some of the world’s greatest wonders and strives to explore, explain and sustain life here on Earth.

From the splashing penguins in African Hall to the wildflowers on the roof, the museum is bursting with life.

Plus, there’s a four-story living rainforest and awe-inspiring coral reef ecosystem that showcases Earth’s biodiversity, while immersive planetarium shows offer a new perspective on the planet we call home.

The Academy also offers one of the most advanced and biologically diverse aquariums in the world, the advanced all-digital dome known as the Morrison Planetarium, and even the Penguins+Pajamas Sleepovers where you can spend the night under the starfish and explore all the exhibits after-hours.
