Exciting day of exploration!Flag review
The Bay Area Discovery Museum was a lot of fun for our family. The Wave Workshop was a hit especially the wind and waves section. The girls loved getting their hands in the water. The Art Studio was fun for both of our girls, however I feel the painting area could've been freshened up a bit. It was worked over a lot by previous kids. It was hard for our 7 year old to leave the Bay Hall - she had a blast sailing around the room. Our 2 year old was fascinated with the ship while I tried to keep her from getting knocked down by the older kids. It didn't seem to bother her. She wanted to be in the mix of things! :) Lookout Cove was super fun for everyone! Exploring the ships and digging for treasure kept our girls intrigued. Musical frogs off to the side was a nice bonus for our 2 year old. My favorite part was the willow maze Haywire - magical indeed! I thought Discovery Hall would be our older daughter's favorite area because of her love for fairy tales but we were happily surprised to see that it wasn't. She was much more engaged and explored more in the other areas of the museum.

This is a wonderful museum for kids eight and under. All of the exhibits are hands-on and are designed to lead children in exploration and discovery. If you're a teacher studying habitats the Wave Workshop recreates the habitat under the GG Bridge and includes info on local birds, salt water life, and...
at $11 a person, I feel it's a hefty price considering 2 parents and at least a child is $33. there are lots of outside play structures and indoor activities located in various bungalows. Paint area seems to attract many kids. Stamp and play-doh like area have minimal stamps and play-doh like clay. Also, ignorant parents seem to th...
