My youngest daughter is very interested in dinosaurs, in fact she wants to be a paleontologist when she grows up. So exciting to travel and dig up dinosaur fossils 🙂 California Academy of Sciences is a very interesting and educational place that we have visited quite a few times. It is located in Golden Gate Park in beautiful San Francisco, Ca. If you have never been and are in the area I highly recommend it.
They have a new exhibit called “Flight of the Pterosaurs” which features just that, Pterosaurs. They have on display many fossil replicas, and a very popular display which is a pterosaur flight simulator where you can fly like a pterosaur and try and catch fish from the ocean.
Besides dino fossils, they have many other interesting things such as a live albino alligator, a rainforest exhibit complete with butterflies and plants from the area, an AWSOME planetarium, aquarium, and earthquake simulator just to name a few things.
