Opening Day was April 17. It began at 9 a.m. with a uniquely Exploratorium ribbon-cutting ceremony, and the doors opened at 10:00 a.m. Throughout the day, artists, special guests, volunteers, and Explainers offered surprises and hands-on activities for visitors waiting in line. After sunset, the awesome celebration continued with special presentations and events.
We are proud to acknowledge the integral role of our sponsors and partners in supporting our move to Pier 15 and related Opening Events.
