Registering is easy:

  1. Select a time frame to visit. Try It Studio opens Monday, March 29 and How Things Work opens April 5. 
  2. Log in to access your member benefits and reserve your preview tickets.
    • Member preview tickets are 1-hour reservations.
    • The start time on your ticket is when your reservation begins.
    • Member preview tickets are free with an active membership.
  3. Reserve general admission tickets. Capacity at BADM is limited, so you will still need to reserve general admission tickets for your visit to the museum when you reserve your exhibit preview tickets. Make sure your entry time is scheduled before or at the same time as your member exhibit preview tickets.
  4. Arrive for your visit. Plan to arrive at BADM at least 5 minutes before your timeslot for the quickest entry experience.
April 5 - May 5

Please note: We anticipate these exhibit previews to sell out and we will not be able to accommodate early or late arrivals.  Please choose an exhibit preview time that corresponds with your museum ticket and show up to the exhibit 5 minutes before your timeslot for fastest entry.  Due to Marin County health guidelines, capacity is limited in these spaces. Please book only the number of tickets your family needs.

If you can no longer make your exhibit preview time, please let us know so another family can take your spot by emailing
