The Oakland Hills may be the last place you’d expect to find a first-rate museum dedicated to space and science. But that’s exactly what we discovered yesterday, when we stumbled upon the Chabot Space & Science Center.
Well, we didn’t exactly stumble upon it. We had read about it, but we didn’t know what to expect up in the Oakland Hills.
We found the observatory shrouded in fog on an uncharacteristically cold, foggy January day.
The kids loved the interactive exhibits. Here’s Erysse trying to start a Mercury capsule. Good luck with that!
We’ll have details on National Geographic Traveler’s Intelligent Travel blog soon.
