Discovering Bay Area Discovery Museum

The Bay Area Discovery Museum is another wonderful place for kids to learn about, see, and touch science. Located in Sausalito, this museum offers free admission days on the first Wednesdays of the month. A fun and educational trip for the summertime for all families of children with special needs, especially our sensory seeking kids. They also offer creative birthday party packages. I think their ‘Messier With Mud” birthday party option sounds particularly interesting and right up my children’s alley. To learn more about them, visit  and see more details below.
This museum is also regularly featured on the SF Funcheap website as a great place to take the family.
