Exploratorium Raises $1.5m - Exceeds Goal
I popped into the Exploratorium's recent fund raising gala and was told the event had raised $1.5 million, $300K more than it expected. Which is fabulous news because there were some job cuts last year.
I'm a big fan of the Exploratorium but the transition to it's new location has taken time to build up visitor numbers. I love the new location and the Exploratorium has managed to recreate the look and feel of the old place at the Palace of Fine Arts. Plus it's three times larger.
Thursday evenings at the Exploratorium are a great time to visit because there's a special theme for each "After Dark" event, lectures, and there's a bar too, plus a great looking crowd. This Thursday:
Here's some photos from the Gala fundraising party and recent Exploratorium events:
