Spanning 7.5 acres of natural beauty framed by the majestic backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) is a space for imaginations to run wild. BADM features both indoor and outdoor exhibitions and programs for children 6 months of age to 10 years.

Creativity is the basis of all educational milestones, including critical thinking, problem solving, and social-emotional development--that's why it's the foundation of BADM's philosophy. From navigating wind tunnels to develop physical and mental risk-taking skills to feeling the rush of cold-water tide pools that surprise and awaken curiosity to tapping their imaginations to transform into a spider, a ship captain, or a bridge builder, children expand their creativity at every turn.
