#13: M is for Museums

We have memberships at several of the museums near here. Some favorites:

  • CuriOdyssey (formerly Coyote Point Museum) - a great little combination, a small zoo with a small science museum and a small environmental museum, all set on a gorgeous point overlooking San Francisco Bay. A family favorite. (Side benefit: as a member of both AZA and ASTC, membership gets reciprocal admissions to both zoos and science museums.)
  • Hiller Aviation Museum - lots of fabulous old planes, the front end of a 747 that the kids can man the controls of, flight simulators, and a great view of San Carlos Airport for those who like to watch the planes take off and land.
  • The Tech - very nice science museum in San Jose, and well-loved (and well-supported) by the local tech industry. Complete with giant domed IMAX screen.
