Exhibits and Programs

Our inquiry-based exhibits and programs blend curiosity and creativity, and we invite guests of all ages and inclinations to explore in their own way.



Our exhibits were designed with a focus on five key categories of inclusive design: vision, hearing, thinking, reach and dexterity, and mobility. We also provide a diverse range of exhibit experiences to cater to different learning styles and engagement preferences.

In 2023, the Exploratorium conducted a Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion Assessment of our exhibits. This assessment highlights our strengths and areas in which we are committed to improving.

Galleries and Exhibits


We offer more than 125 interactive exhibits across four galleries. These exhibits include tabletop interactions, whole-body investigations, observation activities, and more. Some exhibits have clear instructions and outcomes, while others encourage participatory, open-ended exploration.

Included in our space are the Eliason Family Foundation Maker Space and Anne M. Hubbard Geometry Playground. Inside the Maker Space, we invite guests to engage with hands-on programming and experiments. The Geometry Playground is an opportunity for guests ages 5 and up to explore different geometric formations.

Language and Closed Captioning


All exhibit labels and closed captioning for videos are presented in English and Spanish. Both languages are given equal prominence in font size and text placement.
