CuriOdyssey, is a non-profit science museum and zoo in San Mateo where over 100,000 kids each year play with serious scientific phenomena and observe wild animals. CuriOdyssey’s rescued native California wildlife include bobcats, river otters, fox, skunk, birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Daily educational programs include bobcat feedings at noon, otter feedings at 1pm, and Animals in Action presentations by professional keepers.

CuriOdyssey’s innovative, hands-on science exhibits let kids explore the natural world by stirring up a vortex, moving gears and gadgets, examining reflections and perceptions, playing with backyard science, and finding natural patterns in shape and sound.

On the first Friday night each month, families enjoy live music, animals and science at CuriOdyssey’s First Family Friday nights. CuriOdyssey’s popup exhibitions all focus on science and nature, including IlluminOdyssey, a winter light experience for kids.  CuriOdyssey offers popular summer and school break camps, S.T.E.A.M. classes and workshops.

CuriOdyssey participates in and offers volunteer opportunities in conservation projects, research initiatives, and citizen science. CuriOdyssey is located in beautiful Coyote Point Recreation Park in San Mateo, with picnic areas, nature trails and a view of the bay.  Support science for kids and wildlife conservation in the Bay Area.
