California Academy of Sciences: Weekend General Admission Ticket Details

The California Academy of Sciences, based in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, is home to a world-class aquarium, planetarium, rainforest, and natural history museum all under one living roof. Inside one of the greenest museums in the world, visitors find exhibits and experiences that can only be seen at the Academy including 40,000 animals living in the aquarium, the four-story rainforest with its free-flying birds and butterflies, one of the most accurate digital planetariums in the world, a variety of interactive programs and activities, and more!
