What is there to do?

The Bay Area Discovery Museum is a one-of-a-kind indoor and outdoor facility at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, so if you only go for the view you will have a great time!

This fun children's museum is the ONLY museum in the USA to be located in a national park - even more reason to visit! The exhibits within the Bay Area Discovery Museum are ALL about the kids, and each one is designed to give them hands-on learning experiences, to develop their senses, allow them to be curious, to discover, and make new friends!

Suited for kids as young as 6 months, and up to 10 years, they have emphasis on creativity through play, on topics ranging from science, the arts, environment, and just having fun!

Those toddlers in the family can enjoy their own play area in Tot Spot - a multi-sensory experience perfect for the younger family members. Here they can have kiddie sized fun with others their own age, and really helping them in their young years!

Don't miss The Fab Lab for those kids who love to see how things workd, with digital fabrication technology such as 3D printing, and even laser cutters and vinyl cutters!

Kids can navigate wind tunnels, feel the rush of cold-water tide pools, transform into a spider, build a bridge, and SO much more!

If they love the outdoors, there is plenty for them to enjoy the sun, including a 2.5 acre interactive outdoor exploration area, and an Imagination Playground!

The Bay Area Discovery Museum also has special events throughout the year, so make sure you check them out and get them in your diary!

It's time to get exploring!
