"What we value most: The breadth of offerings. The outdoor space. The family classes. The 9am opening time. The changing exhibits in the playhouse. As the children grow, they are attracted to different aspects of the museum."

"As a parent, and a person who holds degrees in Child Development, Masters in Counseling, and a School Counseling Credential....the Bay Area Discovery Museum is everything a young child needs. It is developmentally appropriate, allows for selfdiscovery, and encourages children to learn through play. From the manipulatives, design, presentations, classes and staff .... all are child centered with a developmental approach. It is truly the best children's museum in the Bay!"
