Skift Take

San Francisco is known worldwide as a tech hub so attractions that can tap into that will see branding benefits and an outpouring of local support.

The Exploratorium, San Francisco’s hands-on science and technology learning museum, is set to open up next week in its brand new location at Pier 15 right on the Bay, and we got the chance to head inside a few days early and take a look at the new digs.

Many cities have science museums, but this one has an extra dose of tech cred — its board of directors is headed up by chairman George Cogan, who by day leads Bain & Company’s global technology practice, and also includes other industry luminaries such as Twitter and Square co-founder Jack Dorsey, LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, Google’s third employee and current Khan Academy exec Craig Silverstein, Google’s Jeff Huber, and others.
