Well, as Mark W suggested, there's also The Tech, which is a lot closer, and
has more hands-on exhibits. (They also have the Body Worlds exhibit going on
currently.)

The best by far though, is the Exploratorium, but this is up in San
Francisco, a good hour away.  More science than technology, but the exhibits
are quite engaging.

If you haven't been before, the SF Bay Area has a lot to offer, too much in
fact:

For those into history mixed with a bit of mystery, there's the Rosicrucian
Egyptian Museum in San Jose.

The local San Jose art museum:
<sanjosemuseumofart.org/>

There's NASA Ames Exploration Center:
<http://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/home/exploration.html>

If you're into flying and aviation, there's the phenomenal Hiller Museum of
Aviation farther north:
<http://www.hiller.org/>

A bit pricey, and not that mysterious:

(better to do the flashlight tour at night but this only happens around
Halloween)

There's the tiny but cute pop culture PEZ museum, about 45 min away.
<http://www.burlingamepezmuseum.com/>
(Ignore the pic on the site -- the place is the size of a broom closet)
If you pay the owner $2, he'll grant entrance to the memorabilia room and
personally give you a 5 minute monologue on the history of PEZ.

There's a Cartoon Art museum in San Francisco, again a bit far, but for
folks who have the time and are interested in the medium...

San Francisco has all the big art museums:
MOMA <http://www.sfmoma.org/>
de Yung <http://deyoung.famsf.org/>
Adademy of Sciences <http://www.calacademy.org/>

So many others...
