Thursday evening, we headed to the California Academy of the Science in San Francisco for their weekly Nightlife. The Museum brings in DJs, turns down the lights, and the party begins.
The Rooftop Garden is still relatively new, but filling in well. This Living Roof is planted with all CA Natives, the roof blends in with the surrounding landscape of Golden Gate Park. The Academy of Science SF, redesigned by Renzo Piano, is considered the Greenest Building on Earth.
Nightlife goes from 6-10PM on Thursdays, and 21+. It is one of my favorite times to go: less expensive admission; beverages; less packed since fewer tickets are sold in total.
We spent a lot of time in the aquarium section. But they also have a Rainforest Biosphere, and a Planetarium.
The Original Vertical Garden, under the sea. Below, a variety of succulents were used to mimic the underwater creatures.
Sweet tip we found, 7 days within your birthday Nightlife (only Nightlife, not regular daytime) admission is free.
