Owner description: CuriOdyssey is a serious science playground where kids can observe wild animals and experiment with real scientific phenomena. As a non-profit science museum and zoo, CuriOdyssey lets kids loose to observe wild animals, experiment with scientific phenomena and let the natural world answer their questions. We treat kids like the geniuses they are. Children can play with custom exhibits where they experiment and investigate the fundamental forces in nature while having fun. They see rescued native wildlife that includes river otters, bobcats, and raptors in a walk-through aviary. CuriOdyssey offers educational and fun science programs and camps with professional educators that give students experiences with phenomena that encourage inquiry and develop critical thinking. See the CuriOdyssey website for special events and special hours. https://curiodyssey.org

Loved taking our Grandson there as he explored science, we were equally moved into the excitement and exploration.
A good way to involve all family members in why, how and what they saw, did and the wonders of science in the world around us.

This is a fun hands-on science museum and zoo, for small kids. Note: Both are very small, so a few hours would be perfect. It's in a great location too with fun hiking and views of jet airplanes landing at San Francisco airport.

This is a fun, interactive, easy to get to, park, etc., place for kids to have hands on learning experience in the sciences and interaction with animals. You can take a picnic and the kids can play in the awesome playground near the museum. If you don't live too far away, consider a membership and you can go often!

Curiodyssey is awesome! There are three great things here - the beach, magic mountain play ground and CuriOdyssey itself. Top tip is - on hot days, when parking is tough, park at the beach, that lot is generally empty (ish). It's the second left past the turn to Magic Mountain.

CuriOdyssey is great for the kids to run around, burn off a ton of energy. The playground (Magic Mountain) is probably one of the best in the bay area (several kids, feel like I've seen them all).

In the San Mateo, mid peninsula area, if you have kids, this is not to be missed...

CuriOdyssey is a great place to bring children of all ages, and their parents and grandparents too! Sweeping views and a small type "exploratorium" for children. (Loved watching my grandson there!) The animals kept at the sanctuary are beautiful and their stories are posted with them . . . makes you grateful that this animal sanctuary exists. The dedication and love by the staff towards the work they do with the animals is obvious. A well done and interesting place to go. Our daughter has a membership (which includes parking). It is an excellent value. She goes to CuriOdyssey almost weekly with her young son. He loves it there and never grows tired of it. Highly recommend a membership. Nice gift shop with membership discount.
