Are you ready to get shaken up? The Shake House is back!! Travel back in time to see, hear and feel two earthquakes—an updated version of one of the Academy's most popular past exhibits—lets you experience the sustained tremors of the city's two biggest quakes, the 6.9--magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake and the 7.9--magnitude Great San Francisco quake of 1906.

This experience puts you inside a dining room of a classic Victorian-era home with a window view of San Francisco's famed "Painted Ladies" houses of Alamo Square.

We don't know when the next "big one" will hit but we can learn useful tips on preparing for the Bay Area's next big one.

This was during me and my family's mini outing and educational adventure around the California Academy of Sciences located in San Francisco, CA. It was a gloomy, rainy day out, but we had such a wonderful time discovering and learning about astronomy, marine and land animals, tropical plants and more in and around the facility!
