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 or all ages can practice creative thinking skills, such as physical and intellectual risk-taking and problem-solving skills.

New this September!

We’re building a brand new, better-than-ever train table for Bay Hall! We know that the old train table was well loved, that’s why we’re building a bigger version!

Check it out when we re-open after Closed Weeks on September 22.
