Why BOLD – Bay Area Discovery Museum

Thank You!

BOLD: Spark Curiosity, Inspire Innovation

We want to thank our supporters for the successful completion of our recent capital campaign BOLD. With the incredible support of our community, we raised more than $19.1 million to reimagine our iconic exhibit spaces.

We are so grateful to all of the donors who made this possible. With your help, we have created one-of-kind environments that honor and elevate play-based learning for children. These experiences will shape cherished family memories for generations to come.

Over the coming months, we will be debuting four brand-new exhibits designed by architect Alan Maskin and his team at Olson Kundig, a Seattle-based architecture firm:

Exhibit updates are underway. The museum will remain open throughout.  

Thank you to our Philanthropy Leadership Circle Donors who have contributed $100,000 or more.
