The newly-remodeled California Academy of Sciences is a world-renowned science institution that has something for all ages to experience and enjoy. Along with being the only museum in the world that has a planetarium, aquarium, and natural history museum, the California Academy of Sciences is environmentally and sustainably sound. A garden on the roof, featuring 1.7 million native plants, helps turn carbon dioxide into oxygen while keeping the building insulated and acting as a water reclamation tool. During your visit, you'll learn about what lives along the California coast, as well as in the rainforest, swamplands, and much more. Just about every ecological habitat on earth is featured here, and you can also see wild animals, sea creatures, and native species. Be sure to plan enough time for exploration, as there is much to see and do.
