Geometry Playground

If you think math is boring, think again! You and your family can experience math in a whole new way at both the Museum of Ancient Life and Museum of Natural Curiosity. Geometry Playground, our final year-long exhibition from San Francisco’s Exploratorium, will change the way you think about geometry and math. It is designed to engage your hands, brain, and body in playful investigations of this most visible branch of math.

Each museum will have a different piece of the exhibit so you can come and explore all sorts of different items with each visit.

OPEN MONDAY-SATURDAY 10 AM - 8 PM 
INCLUDED WITH VENUE ADMISSION, FREE FOR THANKSGIVING POINT MEMBERS

Separate admission required for each venue.  Geometry Playground is generously sponsored by Adobe.

Trading Post

Curious minds can explore the natural world right in our own backyard. Go outside in nature and see what is out there. Look under rocks, peer in a stream, and gaze into a tree to see what you can find. Then you can bring in what you find and trade it in for points at the Museum of Natural Curiosity Trading Post. When you’ve saved up enough points, you can pick out a special treasure to take home. You have your choice of everything from magnifying glasses to rocks and minerals, from shells to animal bones and antlers!

 Monday - Saturday
10 am - 8 pm

- If the Trading Post is not open when you visit, please contact any employee and we will get it open for you!

- Regular venue admission is required to access the Trading Post
