Getting Here and Parking
The Bay Area Discovery Museum is most easily accessible by car. While public transportation options are available via Golden Gate Transit, the closest stops require visitors to walk up to a mile and therefore may not be suitable for visitors with disabilities.
Parking is free and available for all visitors in nearby parking lots. A number of designated handicapped parking spaces are reserved for visitors in the lot closest to the Bay Area Discovery Museum. Visitors must have a valid handicapped parking placard or license plate to park in these spots.
All BADM exhibit spaces, dining areas, and public restrooms are wheelchair accessible. A single wheelchair is available to be checked out from the front desk on a first-come, first-served basis.
Service dogs are allowed on site, provided they are under control of their handler at all times during their visit to the Bay Area Discovery Museum. Leash-control of service dogs is required.
Any person who accompanies and performs the task of an interpreter for a visitor who is blind or visually impaired will be admitted at no cost.
Sound-blocking headphones and weighted vests are available at the front desk. If you believe these items will improve your child’s museum experience, please inquire with a staff member upon your arrival.
