The attractions are best suited to 3 - 7 year olds. Be sure to bring swimsuit and water shoes so they can play in the stream as that's a real favorite here. And go with friends or a group. All of the activities are more fun that way -- We can visit something like the Science Center or the Getty... More

Kidspace is a hands on indoor outdoor children's museum for children ages 0-maybe 9. My 4 and 6 year old have been coming for years and still find it fun. We spend many visits in the physics outdoor space, the lazy river, green house, and indoor creature exhibits. We have yet to try out their newest exhibit indoors. The area... More

As a pass holder it makes it convenient to stop in on a whim. My daughter enjoys the many activities they offer. The activities are endless and they have a summer concert series as well. Check the website for details.

Kidspace is a wonderful place for a visit with young children (under 8). There's lots of space for running around, riding carts and tricycles and walls to climb on or hide behind as well as turtles to visit The indoor activities are well laid out and challenging with lots of hands-on fun to be had.

My son is 9 and a half and this place would have been perfect a few years ago. Remember to take clothes and shoes to get wet in. It was 33 dollars for two adults and one child and we were done in about 30 minutes.

I am a local. We were here with our 9 yr old daughter and kids church group on free family night. The entire family gets in free every first Tuesday of the month 4-8pm. Our daughter had a great time. As parents we can't complaint when it's FREE! I would not recommend coming without kids.

If you are not accompanying kids, this museum will not be very interesting. Nor will your visit be pleasant.

I have been here several times with young children. It has a lot to offer, but just now there are attractions outside which are broken, weeds growing, areas of dirt that are not attractive. I think they need to get in there, and repair things, put a bit of money into landscaping and fix it up.

Absolutely love this place. Very age appropriate for my 3 girls aged 6, 5, and 2. First off there are no parking fees and the entrance costs are inexpensive. Being part of the children's museums reciprocal network gives us a 50% discount on the entry fees. The physics forest is pretty awesome.  I love how each interactive area gives a... More
