Lawrence Hall of Science

Hotels near Lawrence Hall of Science, Berkeley, United States .

For science buffs visiting Berkeley, The Lawrence Hall of Science at The University of California, Berkeley is a must-see spot. Lawrence Hall of Science is both a public science center where hands-on learning is highly encouraged and a research center for science and math education for students from kindergarten to senior year of high school.

Whether your interest is in the stars or the sea, there's a permanent exhibit here that will be of interest. The Nanozone allows visitors to play computer games and explore in activity systems the field of nanotechnology. There's a seismograph that shows any earthquakes that might be happening worldwide, and an outdoor science park called The Forces That Shape The Bay, where youngsters and their parents can learn how it is that San Francisco came to be, geologically speaking, and what sort of forces of nature still impact the area to this day.

In addition to the science center, The Lawrence Hall of Science also has a planetarium, which offers members of the public a chance to look at the stars a couple of times a month, as well as other programs throughout the course of the year. From studying the space shuttle program to learning about and sighting comets and meteors, the planetarium is a great resource for amateur and professional astronomers alike.

Even if you're not that interested in science or the stars, it's worth visiting just for the view of the whole San Francisco Bay, which is truly amazing from the building's nook in the Berkeley Hills. The museum is open daily from ten in the morning until five in the afternoon, with the planetarium's programs running on weekends and holidays throughout the afternoon.

A number of hotels are nearby The Lawrence Hall of Science, including The Rose Garden Inn, Hotel Shattuck Plaza, French Hotel, and Hotel Durant.
