I took my son 8 and daughter 4 there. They enjoyed almost everything, spent all day there. Worth the drive form Weho. My kids spent hours on the climbing structure, they have a few. One very tall, and they kept doing it for many many times. The outdoor part is very good as well.

I expected that our 2nd and 4th graders would have outgrown this, but we had to drag them away to meet friends for dinner. We all loved the cause and effect equipment in the physics garden. I'm so glad we decided to go, even for the short time that we were able to stay.

I had the day off & was debating if I should drop-off H at daycare so I can run errands & cleanup (something I put off for several weeks :-X), or spend the day with her. Since I'm a working mom, I felt guilty for not spending some quality time with her. After minimal internal debate, I had to figure... More

I took my 2 year old son and 3 year old daughter on a weekend afternoon and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't overwhelmingly crowded. There were plenty of challenging activities and exhibits to keep them engaged and entertained. My daughter loved the climbing tower, but I would recommend supervision part of the way up in case they get scared.... More

We didn't get to spend as much time as I'd liked here. I grew up going to the old Kidspace and wanted to check out this new location with my kids. It's a little confusing to get here as it's tucked around in one of the parks around the Rose Bowl. The parking we used is a little farther than... More

I've taken my grandkids here numerous times. They're always excited to go. From playing in the pretend canteen and serving us pretend food to climbing all over the place to the craft activities, they are never ready to leave when I am!

This kids museum is nice and has a large outdoor space for the kids. My kids enjoyed the large rock climbing wall out side and the climbing equipment inside. The live bugs exhibit was cool. I have been to better kids museums but this museum wasn't to bad just a little on the small side. This museum is tucked away... More

There is always something going on for kids at the museum. My grandsons always rode the little cars and were wowed by the earthquake demonstration. They are teenagers now so they've outgrown it, but we had lots of fun here when they were younger.

This is a great place for children ages 2 - 10. There are many activities, from sorting plant seeds to crawling in an imaginary ant hole, and more. If the weather is warm, bring a swim suit, or at least a change of clothes, and sandals that can get wet, for playing in the many fountains. You don't have to... More

A cool place to take your kids. I took my two-year-old here, but I think this place is better suite for kids who are in the age range of 5-11. The reason being is that the science behind the different attractions can be appreciated more. For younger kids it is still fun and engaging. For the price, it is bargain.... More
