What the community has to say about Lawrence Hall of Science

Information about this business (2)

For alums and friends of the University of California, Berkeley, the nation’s preeminent public research university. A wellspring of innovation, the school occupies a 1,232-acre campus near downtown Berkeley. UC Berkeley was established in 1868 as the flagship of today’s 10-campus University of California. Foursquare users can follow Cal and learn more about our beautiful and historic campus....

This is a hands-on science museum. Walk in past a full-scale fiberglass model of a fin whale and indulge in earthquake simulations, dice-rolling games of probability, a planetarium and hundreds of other exhibits for both kids and adults. The younger set will particularly appreciate the Wizard Lab. The view from here (day or night) is about the best you will get in the Bay Area.

At this hands-on science museum, kids can look at insects under microscopes, solve crimes using chemical forensics, and explore the physics of baseball. Out front they'll climb on Pheena, a life-size blue-whale model, and clamber over a giant strand of DNA. Out back, it's all about how earthquakes and water have shaped the bay, and from all vantage points sweeping views of the bay and beyond...

Great place for kids on a rainy day

We lived Berkeley. We bought a membership (very reasonable) so we could take the kids all of the time. Our kids, 2 and 5 years old, love it. There are a bunch of fun, interactive things in the entry hall as well as inside and outside. Exhibits change every so often so it stays fresh for the kids. There is...

It's especially geared to children and natural and physical science but as adults we always enjoy. The bookstore is exceptional and has teaching materials for their many curriculums. I used them when I tsught, and with our daughter.
