Explore earth, ocean and space - all in one place by visiting the "Greenest Museum" in the World. The California Academy of Sciences is Platinum LEED certified and the only place on the planet to combine an aquarium, natural history museum, Worlds' largest all-digital planetarium and four story rainforest under a 2.5 acre living roof. Slip on a pair of 3D glasses and check out Bugs3D! shot on location in the tropical forests of Borneo. Meet Claude the Albino Alligator and hang out with Pierre, Howard, Ocio and the rest of the South African Penguin colony. Designed by award winning architect Renzo Piano, the Academy will inspire lifelong curiosity for the natural world as you experience the depths of a Philippine coral reef, climb into the canopy of a Costa Rican rainforest and fly to the outer reaches of the Universe.
