That's a African Jackass penguin and when I say it they think i'm insulting them but who knew there's animal called that. And what's more is that there's an animal called the wild ass(a donkey)

HAPPY FATHERS' DAY, ANIMALS! Few species hug as well as humans, but plenty creature-dads—from water bugs and sculpins, to bullfrogs and emperor penguins—still deliver.

I have to admit, I liked the old CAS better than the new one, but the times they are a changin' I suppose. There was something about that old custom-built planetarium projector with all the little doodads protruding out at every angle. It was a one-of-a-kind mechanical marvel. I hear it's crated up somewhere in one of the Smithsonian warehouses now. The new Morrison Planetarium is really a movie rather than a true planetarium show, but they always have a good show. Nevertheless, I've been a member since opening day and we enjoy the member's nights and other special events.

Nightlife is a really fun time to mingle with friends and enjoy the museum! The museum is generally less crowded because the event is only for 21+ and some people are wandering around buzzed/drunk and not really checking out the exhibits. Anyways it's cool because you can purchase food and alcohol, so you can create a unique museum experience for yourself I guess. First thing we did was grab tickets to planetarium show because they run out quickly. We went to the first one and it was epic. Unfortunately, we missed the forest because they close at 8 PM - so make sure to go inside the greenhouse early! We then explored other exhibits and the aquarium as well. I recommend going on the living roof even if its cold- I wish I went up at night to see the lights through the skylights. I came on a night featuring the theme of "sustainable seafood." I thought there was going to be a sushi demonstration but instead a chef came and prepared oysters and caviar! So fancy and unexpected! The oysters were fresh and delicious. All in all, the experience is what you make of it and NightLife has a lot to offer!

I was shocked at how efficiently they packed so many different, great experiences into the space. Most exhibits are interactive, so definitely not your normal museum!

As a San Francisco mom, this is one of the best places to have a membership. I'm there at LEAST once a week. My kid loves the aquarium, rainforest, and toddler room. He runs around this joint like its his backyard. The museum also treats members well with a lot of perks like early entry on Tues mornings, free behind-the-scenes tour, and discounts at the restaurant. Swing by if you're ever in the area!

Admittance is about $30 per person. Kind of shocking. I've been here on field trips growing up and a couple of times now as an adult. For kids: This place is great. They can interact with some of the exhibits and there are lots of cool fish and creatures. As an adult, each time I went with a different person or persons they always ask "Where's the rest?". There is a lot to do but, the place is small. Kind of giving an incomplete feeling. Maybe it's the shape and design. The highlights are: -The albino alligator -The Earthquake Simulator -The Butterfly house

We came to several Nightlife events and they were always a lot of fun. The museum is full of "Green Propaganda" for lack of a better term. It makes sense given the political climate of The Bay area, but i was still slightly surprised. I felt like I was walking through a Michael Moore movie. But the exhibits are still really cool. They have a beautiful rooftop garden with solar panels which provides a great view of the park and city.

This place rocks. A great place to spend an afternoon, for locals and tourists alike. The Thursday nights events are great as well, though you won't be able to enjoy the rooftop vegetation. Go get tickets for the planetarium right on entry and come back for the showtime after browsing some of the exhibits. The rain forest area was my favorite part.
