San Francisco Academy of Sciences Guided Tour

One night in 1853, only three years after California became a state, seven men assembled in a candle-lit room in San Francisco and founded the first scientific institution west of the Atlantic seaboard. The venerable Academy of Sciences was newly rebuilt in 2008: Bay Area residents and tourists alike enjoy this world-class museum, which is located in Golden Gate Park. Inside, visitors will marvel at the deepest coral reef aquarium in the world, a four-story tropical rainforest dome, a towering T-rex skeleton, a colony of African penguins, a fully-immersive digital planetarium, and the many other exciting venues, exhibits and animals to be discovered within the Academy. Our tour plays on your mobile to guide you through the best and most interesting parts of the Academy.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
