Family classes ignite creativity this winter at the Bay Area Discovery Museum


Are you ready to get messy, explore nature or make music with your child? Registration is now open for daytime and after school family classes this winter at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. Each session includes Museum admission for one adult and one child to explore art, music, nature, shapes and more.

In this new session of engaging and fun family classes, parents and children will discover shapes, learn to investigate and experience colors in Get Ready to Get Messy, where you make the mess and the Museum cleans it up. Does your child love music, dance or art? Music Together and Young Artist Series are sure to please! Or engage your child’s sense of wonder and guide their natural curiosity during outdoor adventures in Golden Gate Discovery Days.

All classes are led by playful Education Facilitators who engage participants in the Museum’s open-ended, child-directed educational philosophy. The classes offer adults a chance to meet other caregivers, and learn activities to do at home. Ignite creative thinking in your child by registering today at Some classes start as early as December.

About the Bay Area Discovery Museum

Creative thinking begins early in every child’s life. It enables original thought and the ability to see solutions where others don’t. It unlocks possibilities and fosters innovation. It provides the fundamental building blocks for success in school and beyond.

The Bay Area Discovery Museum is designed to ignite creative thinking in children. The 7.5 acres of natural beauty inspires families to engage in a world of possibilities. Framed by the majestic backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, the museum is a space for imaginations to run wild. Every curated detail of our exhibits brings creative thinking to life for all stages of childhood. Navigate winding tunnels to develop physical and intellectual risk-taking skills. Feel the rush of cold-water tide pools that surprise and awaken curiosity. Imagine new worlds by transforming into a spider, a ship captain, or a bridge builder. At every turn is a new opportunity to challenge the boundaries of creativity.

Now we are taking these experiences beyond our physical location. We launched the Center for Childhood Creativity in 2011 to pioneer new research, thought-leadership, and teacher training programs that advance creative thinking in all children—extending our impact beyond the Museum.

Our mission: To ignite and advance creative thinking for all children.
