The Bay Area Discovery Museum is dedicated to providing an exceptional, safe, and fun educational experience for all our visitors. Volunteers at the Museum provide essential services that enhance the experience of our guests and visitors while at the same time playing and having fun.
We value the time and contributions our volunteers provide and offer a variety of opportunities for the young and young-at-heart to share their many skills and talents with our organization. The Museum welcomes all creative and enthusiastic individuals who want to enrich the lives of children and help inspire the future generations of creative thinkers and innovators.
