Whether you are a comic book collector, or a casual comic book reader, you will find a visit to Isotope worth your while. Anyone living in Hayes Valley who likes comics and graphic fiction, knows this place, and that is not just for its impressive collection of books, though it is very commendable. This lounge-cum-comic-book-store brings the best of both together to create a unique gallery-cum-reading-room kind of place, where customers can lounge around on the leather sofas while reading a book or two, or attend a live event featuring known names in the comic books business. What's more, you can tag along your furry four-legged friend to partake in this experience, since Isotope welcomes dogs.

Children's Creativity Museum

Young creativity is blossoming inside this space-age glass and metal cone. The Children's Creativity Museum is the place for budding kid and teen artists to hone their skills while also discovering new ones. Visual, media and performing artists are always on hand to interact with the museum's visitors. Children are encouraged to help with projects, including stop-motion animation, digital photography, and the cutting-edge, new media form of web casting. Do not miss the Charles Loof carousel (circa 1906); its hand-carved wooden animals have been restored to their original baroque perfection. There is also a theater on the premises used for various performances of different genres that stem outside the children's genre. This place is wonderful fun for the whole family.
