This photo was taken at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, California. The Cal Academy is an awesome place to go for a day, and if you’re interested and 21 or over, they also have nightlife programs every Thursday. It’s not exactly a regular museum, kind of more like a science center; it’s got a planetarium, an aquarium, and a bio dome. It’s a great place to visit with kids, or to go for a date, or just a fun day of science! So, If you’re in the mood for some super cool learning, and you’re in the bay area, you should definitely check it out!

The exhibit has some really neat statues, I thought this one was particularly cool, but there are also a couple of really large statues here too. The exhibit starts with a video, to give you some background information on the material displayed, and both reading material and headsets are provided. And, when you are done ¬†with this exhibit you can wander around the rest of the museum. It’s a great museum, with a lot of fun little exhibits, and it’s totally family friendly. The only thing i’d recommend is going earlier in the day rather than later, this is for two reasons; one is, it’s not located in the best neighborhood, it shouldn’t be a problem, but just to be on the safe side try to be gone before dark. The other is, there are a few other really cool museums around, check ’em out if you have time!
