Exploratorium moving

There’s good news for people who loved San Francisco’s Exploratorium. For years it’s been a favorite spot for local families and tourists in its home at the Palace of Fine Arts, but now it has plans to move to a new location on the Embarcadero. The move will take about two years (perhaps more) so we’ll have plenty of time to get used to the idea. The new building will have more space for exhibits and activities and will offer spectacular views. Although there has been some discussion of threats to the marine environment posed by the building, it looks as though planners have been able to work out acceptable ways of building to avoid dislocating birds and marine life. In these days of gloomy news day after day, it’s encouraging to think that one institution at least is planning for a brighter future.
