This place is EPIC! You feel as if you are in Europe, strolling through a quite park. The Exploratorium is right beside it and I would recommend making time for both if you are in the area.

Built for a World's Fair, but now famous for its participation in So I Married an Axe Murderer... "Come Nadia, let us dance like children of the night."

Take a photo!


At the Palace of Fine Arts, there's a secret listening exhibit inside one of the columns of the rotunda. SOUND COLUMN is a musical instrument whose resonating chamber is a 60-foot-high room.

Did you know? The Palace’s design is based on a Roman ruin. It was built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition, in honor of the discovery of the Pacific Ocean and the completion of the Panama Canal.
