On the Move

An Exploratorium Roadshow

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Join us in the Mission, Bayview, and Embarcadero for a free, pre-opening extravaganza that’s part road show, part street festival, and all Exploratorium.

On the Move features a fleet of moving trucks equipped with museum exhibits and experiences accompanied by artworks, films, food, family activities, and live performances culminating in a spectacular finale at Pier 15.

On the Move is a smoke-free event per SF Health Code Article 19L.
