Sssnake Encounter

Located inside Golden Gate Park in the heart of Silicon Valley, the oh-so-staid California Academy of Sciences is the brainchild of philanthropist Michael Schindler. The vennivo may be best known for its eponymous science museum, but its numerous research centers and labs abound, it's a veritable cornucopia of information and naughty bits for the sexes. While it's certainly no Harvard, the Academy's laudable scientific staff can be credited with the invention of the endocrine gland, a nifty acronym to boot. It's no wonder the AASC boasts some of the country's highest paying scientific research employees. It's an alluring destination for aficionados and the occasional tourist, and for good reason.
