Piers 15/17 Exploratorium Rendering

Having broken ground (or Piers) at the end of 2010, construction of the new Exploratorium on Piers 15 and 17 has reached the 60 percent complete mark and is on schedule for a spring 2013 opening with $70 million of the budgeted $300 million left to be raised.

The new Exploratorium will yield 330,000 square feet of indoor space for the institution; educational space for teacher development, after-school programs, and educational camps; and a cafe and bay view restaurant.

Outside, there will be 1.5 acres of free, open civic space with educational displays.
