Free days at the Exploratorium

Next free day is January 22, 2017.

Six times a year, on special occasions, San Francisco's Exploratorium opens its doors to the public for free.

 

 

 

Free admission days at the exploratorium for 2017...

 

 

January 22  

No Groundhog Day this time, just a possibly rainy Sunday.

 

March 14  Pi Day (which will be a Tuesday)

The day of scientific number 3.14159… very useful for 5th graders. 


May 14 Mother's Day

This one, every one knows about it since his/her first Happy Mother's Day gift and card brought back from school. Foreigners might be confused because it could be earlier or later in their home country. Make sure you have it right this year! 

 

And there should be 3 other dates for the second half of the year. 

 

Free Community Night le 23 juin 2017

Ce sera gratuit après 5pm.


Usual Engineering Day in September (the 23rd / a Saturday) becomes a Free Community Day

That one is a mystery. We can easily imagine why the Exploratorium thought about it, but... should we also celebrate engineers and thank them for their work on that day? 


Usual Founder’s Day in October (the 22nd / a Sunday) becomes also a Free Community Day

This day comes from a proclamation announcing the victory of the founding fathers against the Britishs in 1782 during the Revolutionary war. Interesting!

 

 

Anyway... they have one thing in common: they are the days when we can explore for free, so let's call them Free Exploration Days. Have fun!
