A family of four entering San Francisco's Exploratorium can cost — gulp! — about $100 if the children are between 4 and 12 years old, so putting their free admission days on your calendar is a wise move.

Local mom Melissa Moore says, “Some of my favorite, unique exhibits that are accessible for preschoolers include: a room with different types of xylophones and mallets to experiment with sound, the many light and shadow exhibits that can be experienced by walking (or dancing) in front of a screen, the “fog” bridge outside, and many of the pieces of “art” that can be touched and experienced with the senses.”
