Bay Hall

Explore boats, trains, and the wharf!

Children enjoy a playful simulation of the Ports of San Francisco and Oakland in Bay Hall. The exhibit features a Fisherman’s Wharf model where children can fish for crabs. In the Port of Oakland, children can lift and lower containers around a ship, and the underwater tunnel encourages kids to crawl around and explore independently. The vintage train sets are a classic—and a great way for kids to engage in creative play. In this tactile and stimulating environment, children develop creative thinking skills, such as physical and intellectual risk-taking and problem-solving skills.
