Sharing my thoughts, experiences, and special moments with you!

My field trip to the California Academy of Sciences in SF!

It feels like ages, since I’ve been on a field trip to a science museum.  Growing up, I used to love going to the aquarium, historic sites, and especially the science museum with my mom and brother.  The best part is being able to score some toys at the museum shop towards the end!!!  

The California Academy of Sciences is surrounded by a giant park, that features endless trails and even an outdoor kiddie park with cool jungle gym like attractions.  The parking is 2.50 an hour at the CAS, so we decided to street park and just walk it on over.  Upon our arrival, we were greeted by a massive structure that was just breathtaking.  It was a work of art!  Please enjoy my field trip photos with JP, as we explored the California Academy of Sciences!  BTW…General admission for adults is $25 and $20 if you show a student ID.  I must warn you, the pics are amazing, but you have to go there in person to see all of the attractions.  You won’t be disappointed!
