01Bay Area Discovery Museum

This museum, across the Bay in Sausalito, is an exciting hands-on experience for kids from six to 10. Inquiry-driven experiments help to develop their creative talents and enhance critical thinking skills with both indoor and outdoor activities. Kids can ride a Harley-Davidson on a simulated road or get messy making cakes and pies in the Mud Kitchen. The Lookout Cove is ideal for curious youngsters. They can find plenty to do along the tide pools, in the gravel pits and exploring caves. There is also a safe and entertaining Tot Spot for infants and toddlers.
