Lawrence Hall of Science reviews
Beautiful views of the San Fransisco Bay; you feel like you can see everything. The science center is very nice got young children, and the entire visit was very interactive. You can make rocket ships from paper and test them against each other. The Planetarium where you can see Earth, moons, and planets was very interesting.
Interesting Science museum. I remember the cyclotron exhibit the best. Learned how helium and other gases are made. Has great view of San Francisco. Driving up the mountain you also get a great view of the Hayward fault.
