About Steinhart Aquarium in San Francisco, California

Imagine 600 different kinds of fish from the size of a child’s pinkie to as large as five feet, from as close as San Francisco Bay to as far away as the Amazon River Watershed. Nowhere else can you see such diversity than at the California Academy of Sciences’ Steinhart Aquarium. You may see garden eels peep up out of their sand hideouts, a freshwater polka-dotted stingray soar through the water, or a pack of hungry piranhas circle in wait of mealtime. Bring your kids to see lizards scurrying on rocks, snakes coiling around branches, and alligators lounging in the swamp.

Steinhart Aquarium is located in Golden Gate Park on the western edge of San Francisco. The park has many other educational facilities, gardens, and recreational opportunities. When you are done with the aquarium, head to Golden Gate Park Beach for a sunset walk.
