What You'll Get
Kids, like Ponce De Leon, need constant supervision while exploring or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Guide your child through an educational wilderness with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two admission tickets to the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito (up to a $20 value).
Tucked at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, the indoor-outdoor Bay Area Discovery Museum is the only children's museum in the U.S. to be located in a national park. Youth-centered exhibits focus on developing creativity through play and fostering innovative problem-solving skills in kids 6 months to 8 years old. In the museum's Bay Hall, future marine biologists revel in playful simulations of Oakland and San Francisco's ports, while the outdoor Lookout Cove, sprawled across 2.5 acres, invites kiddies to comb the trails, the fishing boat, and the simulated shipwreck for educational maritime artifacts and the elusive peg-legged seagull. Art studios nurture expressive splotches, and a simulated wave workshop re-creates the habitats underneath the Golden Gate, showcasing how species develop unique traits and fashion statements to adapt to their environment.
Bay Area Discovery Museum earned a perfect three-star rating from Frommer's. They were reviewed by Fodor's, and featured in the San Francisco Bay Guardian's "Best of the Bay 2009" list. lilaguide reviewers and over 110 Yelpers give the museum an average of 4.5 stars.

About Bay Area Discovery Museum
Located at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge on 7.5 acres of National Park land, the Bay Area Discovery Museum provides STEM-focused, inquiry-driven experiences that develop creativity and conceptual thinking, critical components of problem solving that are too often missing from early childhood education. They also serve as a resource for the broader community by providing information, models, training, and resources for educators and families.
All of the BADM’s programs and exhibitions are research-backed through their research division, the Center for Childhood Creativity (CCC). The CCC launched in 2011 to bridge the gap between academic research in the fields of neuroscience, education, psychology, and creativity studies with the practitioners charged with raising a generation of future innovators.
Their mission is to transform research into early learning experiences that inspire creative problem solving.
