Took my 7 year old nieces and they didn't want to leave. Loved the treasure hunt they had for the kids. Great play area in a beautiful area.

One of the best in its class, the Bay Area Discovery Museum is an excellent place to take the kids, even better our babies since has many areas for them to get busy and involved in the many different activities and now with his new "restaurant for children" where everything is healthy and thinking about our kids!
Lucky to be close enough to take my little one there!

My son, age four was especially excited to "excavate" the sunken artifacts out of the outdoor Spanish ship exhibit. The view is incredible and the staff were incredibly courteous and attentive to my son. We had an amazing time and will definitely go back given the opportunity.

We took our 4 1/2 year old and his 14-month-old brother here recently. They really liked playing with the trains, the building "blocks," and doing the art projects. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge from below is breath-taking. On a sunny day, it's a great place to bring children because the museum is organized into separate buildings and there are activities outside, as well. You can bring a picnic lunch, which worked well for our group, or purchase food there. All-in-all, a very pleasant experience for both children and adults.
