Thanks to a generous grant from Target, San Francisco residents will enjoy fall and spring free admission days at the California Academy of Sciences


SAN FRANCISCO (September 2013) – San Francisco residents will have opportunities to visit and explore the California Academy of Sciences free of charge during the upcoming fall and spring seasons, with the help of a generous grant from Target.  Over the past fourteen years, thousands of San Francisco residents have visited the Academy during Neighborhood Free Days. The Academy’s award-winning new building, which will soon pass its five-year anniversary, houses an aquarium, planetarium, rainforest, and natural history museum – all under one living roof. Each neighborhood, defined by zip codes, will have two opportunities to visit the Academy for free over a three-day weekend (Friday, Saturday or Sunday).  The fall series of free weekends runs from October 4-November 3, 2013 and the spring series of free weekends runs from February 28-March 23, 2014.

“At Target, we are committed to serving local communities where we do business,” said Laysha Ward, President of Community Relations for Target. “That’s why we are proud to partner with the California Academy of Sciences as we work to strengthen communities and enrich the lives of our guests and team members.”

Each visiting adult must show a valid photo ID with proof of residency—acceptable items or combinations can be found on Only residents from the zip codes invited on the designated dates will be admitted free of charge. The attached schedule outlines the program by zip code neighborhoods.
