  • Have taken son here at 6 months and 22 months. He has loved it both times. The most recent time we stayed all day and he loved every minute of it. Seems great for all ages! Lots of advanced crafts for when he gets older.
  • It secretly has the most unique view of the Golden Gate bridge and a gorgeous view of the city. A lot of the museum is outdoors which is great. The "tot spot" is definitely cool for small children, and it has a great water feature. Free parking too!
  • This place was AMAZING! We saw Daniel Tiger, dug up a gravel pit, built a forklift and climbed in and out of a boat... in the FIRST hour. Even though the exhibits were great and the staff was pleasant, I was actually most impressed with the food. A children's museum with healthy, tasty food!
  • We thought the toddlers would be done after an hour, but three hour later, plus a cute lunch at the on-site cafe, and we needed to leave, but the kids still wanted to play. They slept all the way home. Remember to bring a sweater, even in summer.
  • One of the best children's activity centers in the Bay Area. They have rotating artists in residence, several buildings worth of interactive activities, 3D printer building, a huge outdoor area with sunken ships to explore. My favorite exhibit is the Bay Area activity building with a fishing boat, cranes like the Port of Oakland, and train sets. They have a great cafeteria with organic and healthy foods available.
