Also in Yerba Buena Gardens you’ll find this innovative, hands-on multimedia, arts, and technology museum for children of all ages. Kids howl tunes to the karaoke machine, and make art projects from boxes and scraps of material. One of the most popular stations is the Claymation area where visitors make clay figures and learn all about stop-motion animation by making a quick movie, “Wallace and Gromit”–style. Next door is the fabulous 1906 carousel that once graced the city’s bygone oceanside amusement park, Playland-at-the-Beach, plus there’s a Children’s Garden, a cafe, and a fun store.
