The Bay Model Visitor Center is a fully accessible education center administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It allows the public to view a three-dimensional working hydraulic model of the San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta System. The 1.5 acres model is capable of simulating tides and currents and is the only one of its kind in the world.
The Bay Model Visitor Center is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 9:00am to 4:00pm.
From June through Labor Day the Center is also open on Sundays. Admission is free and donations are welcome. Please check our website for workshops and other special events. Group tours may be arranged with advance reservations.
