From 10 am to 5 pm, visitors to the Exploratorium can take part in a variety of events and activities honoring Frank Oppenheimer. At the Explorables table from 11 am to 2pm, you can make a spinning top, one of Frank’s favorite DIY projects. Throughout the day in the Mind Theater, you can see a series of Exploratorium ‘home movies,’ featuring the early days of the museum, as well as footage of Frank engaging with visitors and staff. The day’s events will also feature a Frank-themed presentation in the McBean Theater, screenings of some of his favorite films from the museum’s Cinema Arts archives (including the Eames’ Power of Ten) ‑ and cake!
