Bay Area Discovery Museum Covid-19 Changes and Restrictions

Reserve your time slot using their timed ticketing system (note: member or not, you'll need to create an account to do this). The times represent timed entry so the museum will probably fill up later in the day.

All visitors over age 3 will be required to wear face-covering masks. Frequent cleanings will be supplemented with hand washing stations and hand sanitizer throughout the campus.


Indoor exhibits will be closed along with a few other high-touch areas. So, it will feel different. There will be six new activities encouraging fun and safe play so families can learn and explore together. You know if the Discovery Museum has designed it, it will be great and secretly educational. New socially distanced activities include:

  • Spray Bottle Painting. Create a unique spray bottle painting on a giant canvas, and watch as it becomes part of a collaborative masterpiece.
  • Paint Our Village. Children will paint details on kid-sized houses in BADM’s mini village.
  • Obstacle Course. Children will be challenged to balance, run, crawl, and move their bodies in creative ways to navigate the course.
  • Mud Kitchen. Whip up mud cakes, cookies, pies and more tasty treats using real cooking equipment in an outdoor mud kitchen
