Ale and I recently had the pleasure of attending the Exploratorium After Dark Series at San Francisco’s Exploratorium Museum (check out some awesome posts on social media by searching #exploafterdark
). We have been meaning to check out this special Thursday night exhibit and haven’t had the chance until this past Thursday. Let me tell you it is quite amazing! I have spent many afternoons at the Exploratorium Museum with the little one I previously nannied for and have never seen it like this.
We started the night by entering the tactile dome at the museum (find more about that HERE
) and let me tell you it is definitely an experience. It is a sensory deprivation dome where you essentially need to crawl, walk and find your way through the maze with your partner completely in the dark. I of course had a slight panic attack in the beginning and after Ale and Patrick (the #exploafterdark
employee) explained to me I wouldn’t die we were on our way. It was hands down the best part of the night for us! After that we grabbed a drink from the bar, water and a cola, and were on our way. Ale and I checked our each and every exhibit and learned how science is involved in all of the hands on activities. It was a learning experience we both loved. If you have not attended and live close to the Bay Area you really need to!
After we spent a good 2 hours exploring we stopped in their cafe and had a bite to eat. I was not aware they had a full service cafeteria style restaurant in the back but was pleasantly surprised when we found it. I mean isn’t that ever pregnant woman’s dream!? They offered everything from fresh sushi (something I can’t have until after pregnancy boo!), mac & cheese balls, french fries, cookies, desserts and more. I was in food heaven to say the least. Momma, baby and Ale were happy campers.
