Welcome to Ticket Tuesdays, your weekly chance to score entry to some of the hottest shows and events in the Bay Area.

A visit to the California Academy of Sciences is a must-do for every local and tourist, and if you haven't met Claude the albino alligator yet, it's about time!

Not only is it a spectacular museum in a stunning building (with a 2.5 acre living roof!), but the California Academy of Sciences is also a leading research and educational institution. You could spend hours upon hours wandering through a four-story tropical rainforest, gazing in awe at the all-digital planetarium, learning at the natural history museum, admiring swimming species in the new aquarium and coral reef, and meeting 40,000 live animals. 

Want to go? We've got a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner. All you have to do is sign up for our newsletter (below) by Monday 12/2 at 5 p.m. and we'll choose one lucky winner at random to experience a fun day out at the Academy! The winner will be notified via email. Good Luck!
