Maybe this place is best suited for children below 10. But the science based activities can also be fun and interesting for older ones.

Kidspace was designed for kids, but as adults, my husband and I found lots to like and admire - and watch the children enjoy themselves. This museum inspires kids to play in unique ways, explore the Haunted House, learn from the Critter Expo, unleash an earthquake, feed giant bugs, craft art, climb raindrops 40' in the air, as well as...

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.

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
