Our mission: To transform research into early learning experiences that inspire creative problem solving.
At the Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM), we believe that providing children with the high-quality early learning experiences they need to be successful is the best investment we can make as a society.
Whether at the Museum, online, or in the community, BADM provides experiences that spark children’s natural curiosity for the world around them, while building their creative problem-solving skills and STEM content knowledge. Both on-site and off-site, BADM facilitates research-backed learning experiences that are fun and engaging for children and families. At our one-of-a-kind location at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, this includes hands-on exhibits, rich STEM and art programming, an on-site preschool, and camps and classes. Off-site, our museum educators bring hands-on STEM programming to students and families at schools and libraries in all nine Bay Area counties.
We believe that these research-backed on-site and off-site experiences should be made available to all children and families and offer a variety of access initiatives toward this goal. We are currently at a reduced attendance capacity, following strict COVID-19 protocols, and working our way back up to our pre-pandemic numbers:
BADM is committed to being welcoming and inclusive. We are continuously working toward the goal of reflecting the diversity of the Bay Area both within our organization and with those we serve.
