San Francisco’s Exploratorium is Moving, Growing — and Evolving

After forty-three years in the Palace of Fine Arts near the Golden Gate Bridge, the Exploratorium is moving to a restored pier on the Embarcadero. The move is a big experiment for the museum: how to grow into its new location, without losing the feel of its old self.

This aired on KQED Science on March 25, 2013. There are a bunch more pictures on KQED’s website.
