Photos Inside OneDome, San Francisco’s interactive experience
Onedome is yet the latest of many San Francisco Based interactive Art Experiences. As soon as I heard about it, I purchased two tickets and took my museum pal, Allie. Onedome is actually two separate exhibits in one: The first being a VR experience called “The Unreal Garden” and the second being LMNL, a series of rooms with interactive lights and wall art. We donned our VR goggles first and walked through a jungle of iridescent mushrooms, gigantic flowers, and abstract interactive art. We spent maybe 20 minutes in the room before we felt we were ready to move on. Allie was having trouble keeping the headset from falling, and mine was missing a key interaction they claimed I should be seeing. Despite the mishaps, it’s still a fun experience.
The VR room
The next room called LMNL was much more exciting. As we entered, a kaleidoscope of color and light danced across the room in a blur.
Moving on, we encountered multiple rooms with interactive wall art, mirror booths, and rainbow LED curtains.
I recommend either wearing something bright to pop off this black and white wall or wearing a neutral color to blend in.

Is it worth it?
After every museum experience like this, I always ask myself if I had enough fun to offset the cost. I think for the LMNL side of Onedome, it was definitely worth it for the visual eye candy. There are so many museums designed for selfie’s like The color factory or the Museum of Ice Cream but unlike those, LMNL felt more interactive and exploratory. There are definitely places you will see people lining up to take photos in front of, but to me at least, it wasn’t all about the selfie. I say this one is worth it if you go with a friend or take your kids for a few hours of fun.
