Can you smell time? Your dog can. #NationalDogDay
Can you smell time? Your dog can. On a very basic level, so can you: When you crack the lid on that old quart of milk, tentatively sniff and—peeyouu!—promptly dump that foul stuff down the sink, you are, in effect, smelling time. Specifically, you can smell that far too much time has elapsed since that milk was fresh.

Story
Tagline
The museum of science, art and human perception, for all ages, located in San Francisco.
Introduction
The Exploratorium is a museum of science, art, and human perception founded in 1969 by Dr. Frank Oppenheimer. Our mission is to create a culture of learning through innovative environments, programs, and tools that help people nurture their curiosity about the world around them.

We believe that following your curiosity and asking questions can lead to amazing moments of discovery, learning, and awareness, and can increase confidence in your ability to understand how the world works. We also believe that being playful and having fun is an important part of the process for people of all ages.

Our grand opening at Pier 15 is Wednesday, April 17! Visitors are strongly urged to buy tickets in advance to minimize entry time waiting in line. http://www.exploratorium.edu/visit/tickets
