What people are saying:

California Science Museum Tropical Rainforest Pavilion Located in the California Academy of Sciences (California Museum of Science) in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, there is a Rainforests of the World, the world’s largest display of spherical rainforest. It is a 90-foot-diameter large spherical glass four-story building along The spiral trail rises. The simulated real tropical rainforest in the museum has a temperature of 82-85 degrees Fahrenheit and a humidity of 75%. Butterflies and parrots fly in it, showing the rainforest ecology of different parts of the world. There are reptiles, amphibians, and different birds and butterflies on display. The animals in the rainforest are always beautiful in color, and you can see several different frogs. The hall circled along the walkway into three floors, and many birds and butterflies flew freely in the hall. Insects and amphibians are in display cabinets on both sides, and the patio is an artificial pool. After reaching the highest point, there is an elevator directly down to the aquarium.

Additional Information


Located in the center of Golden Gate Park, the recently opened California Academy of Arts and Sciences is one of the city's gems. Designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, the Academy's roof is made of grass and sculpted to look like the park's rolling hills had been lifted up and the Academy slipped underneath. Beneath the roof, the Academy houses a full-scale aquarium, a natural history museum and a planetarium. Great for kids, there is enough to see here for a full day.
