Rainy Days at BADM

When it’s wet out, BADM transforms into the perfect spot for rainy day fun!
Umbrellas Available at the Front Desk

Umbrellas are always available to borrow at the front desk, so dress in layers, grab your raincoat, and head to BADM.

Get Cozy in the Winter Tent

BADM’s new winter tent is up over Festival Plaza, creating a cozy, dry space for building with the big blue blocks at Imagination Playground.

Get Messy in the Mud

What better way to spend a rainy day than splashing around in the mud? In BADM’s  Mud kitchen, children can have fun using real kitchen equipment to bake up mud pies, mud cakes, and more. A little extra water makes this outdoor exhibit even more fun – and we have aprons on-hand to handle the mess!

Favorite Indoor Exhibits

BADM's five regular indoor exhibits, are always open during rainy days. From the Art Studios, to the Fab Lab, Ball Hall, and more, there is always something to do and explore in our indoor exhibits during rainy days.
