As part of our robust museum experience, BADM offers creative outdoor and indoor activities for your family to enjoy! Each activity encourages fun and safe play so families can learn and explore together. Each program is influenced by research-backed learning goals. As children engage in different activities, parents are supported to identify these moments of creative development.
All daily programs are included with general admission.
