California Academy of Sciences

This massive museum reopened at its new site in Golden Gate Park. The museum features, among many other exhibits, a breathtaking dinosaur collection. No one’s sure exactly why children love dinosaurs so much. Is it that they were big? That they’re extinct? The museum also prides itself on its Skulls exhibit, which consists of skulls from all over the animal kingdom, presented together to astounding effect, and sure to delight some children.
