Visit BADM

The Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) is a space for imaginations to run wild! Located at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge on 7.5 acres of National Park land in Sausalito, BADM features exhibition spaces and daily programs for children 6 months of age to 10 years. 

Advanced Ticket Reservations are required due to limited capacity.

Flower Power

Explore your creativity in the latest reimagining of our Art Studio. Enjoy hands-on activities where you can add a flower to our community flower installation and take a flower to enjoy at home.

Daily Programs

As part of our robust museum experience, BADM is offering creative activities for your family to enjoy! Each activity encourages fun and safe play so families can learn and explore together.

BADM programs (included in general admission) engage children in research-backed fun through active programs, imaginative art projects, and design challenges.

Gumnut Grove Opens Soon!

Adventure through the treetops.

Your child will experience the wonders of nature as they run, play and climb through 3 large treehouses nestled in the canopy of Fort Baker's majestic trees. Members get to see this first! Join now for exclusive member access to Gumnut Grove.
