Reopening: Lawrence Hall of Science for Summer Fundays

It is no secret that we’re big fans of the Lawrence Hall of Science. We are super excited to report that Lawrence Hall of Science is reopening outdoors this summer starting Memorial Day weekend.

Calling it Summer Fundays at The Lawrence, they’ll be open Fridays through Sundays with outdoor hands-on science activities and ingenuity challenges. As always, the climb-on DNA double helix sculpture and magical Bay Area views will be an added bonus.

There is an ample parking lot but it costs extra. Because the entire experience takes place in the outdoor plaza, we easily wheeled our gear around in the wagon.
