about Bay Area Discovery Museum:
The exhibits change every so often and successfully engage kids on many levels. The museum's latest permanent addition - Lookout Cove - is a 2.5-acre outdoor adventure zone with a 1595 shipwreck replica, a rocky sea cave, a crow's nest, a two-ton redwood log, and a climbable Golden Gate bridge!
Other constants include a science lab focusing on waves and wind, an arts studio in which kids can create something new to take home, and a Discovery Center for little kids, called Tot Spot, that is so engaging big kids are always trying to sneak in.
Bring lunch and picnic on one of the tables there. Or buy refreshments at the small cafe that caters to kids.
