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 outdoor and indoor exhibition spaces and daily programs for children 6 months of age to 10 years. 

Advanced Ticket Reservations are required due to limited capacity.

Camps at BADM

Camps at BADM are the perfect blend of the Museum's exhibits and the surrounding National Park, Fort Baker.

Join us for Spring Break and Summer camp sessions. Enrollment begins as early as January 25.
