Everyone in our group had a fun time. It is not a huge space so grandma could easily walk around with us (unlike the LA Zoo which takes a lot of walking). The "Physics Forest" is super cool for me, an engineer, but also was fun for the kids. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. I plan to go back.

This is a great place to visit right by the Rose Bowl. So many things for kids to see and do. We went when it was a bit warm out and there were water features that kids could play in. It's really inexpensive too and they offer a year pass if you live in the area and would like to... More

Set in the outskirts of Brookside Park near the Rose Bowl and next to the actual field Jackie Robinson played in as a boy with his brother Mack give the Museum a historical value. Kids and adults will both enjoy the variety of activities available.

If typy have kids under ten years old there is so much fun to be had at kidspace.I had a six month membership and it more than paid for itself over that period of time.

There is so much to do. I just let my 7 year old grandson go wherever he wants. It's educational in a very playful and interesting way.

Took 2 of my grandchildren, ages 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 here. We had a great time . They enjoyed climbing up the big towers. There was an opportunity to paint and we experimented with mixing colors. They especially enjoyed the Arroyo, where they waded in the stream and got soaked! There were also trikes to ride and water table... More

Great day with our grandson age 2.5! Many children's museums say they are "hands on" and aren't! Every activity here is fun and really hands on, so children can get involved themselves without adults explaining what to do. A special inside play area for those under age 4 is the best I've ever seen. Easy water activities, like shooting water... More

Kidspace keeps getting better and better. They have a new area for arts and crafts with very patient young people assisting children in making a project. We took three grand children on a Saturday, ages 7 and two three year olds. We spent nearly four hours there. It was a hot day so we let them wear swimsuits and brought... More
