If you’re ever in San Jose and have a child under the age of 10 with you, check out the Children’s Discovery Museum. It’s a fun destination with lots of hands-on activities for kids of all ages. My daughter really liked the water display and the hands-on project area. It’s right downtown, plenty of parking, close to mass transit, right near the intersection of Highway 87 and I-280. Admission is $8.
If you’re in San Francisco, there’s a very similar museum called the Exploratorium near the marina. We highly recommend that as a destination too (we visit the Exploratorium at least once per month and maintain a membership there.) Tweet
