This place is great for mostly kids under 10 years of age. Such a great place for the family to go. Many educational spots to explore and play. Can easily spend 3 hours in there and still much to explore. Admission is pretty good, do search for discount deals before heading there. I looked up a $3 off discount online,... More

I took my children last week to the Children's Museum. They spent six hours running, playing and climbing. One of my daughters fell asleep before we left the parking lot. The parking is free and the price is $11 dollars per person. I have paid almost 30 dollars for overnight parking before so in my opinion the price for admission... More

I have had the pleasure of going to Kidspace a number of times; first with the children of a friend and then with my granddaughter. Being there never disappoints, no matter what the child you are with has in mind for the day. We also had a birthday party there and I have never seen so many captivated 2 year... More

We bought a Kidspace family membership about 3 years ago--as soon as our granddaughter was walking. We take her to KidSpace a couple times a month and she never tires of it. Whether it's quiet play in the "Little Kids' Room" or story time, or music time, or exploring the stream on the hillside, meeting Tortellini the turtle, crawling down... More

Lots to explore here for the kiddos, just wish they had more for the under 3 tots. Went on a very busy day and my 15month old who can climb, walk, run, was practically run over by the 4 and ups! Really cool outside experimental set-ups for the older kids to enjoy.

I recently visited LA with my 5 year old daughter. We took a day out to visit Pasadena and had a lovely time. The museum is set in the grounds of the Rose Bowl; and during our visit they were decorating the floats for the Rose Parade! The museum has plenty of indoor and outdoor attractions and is far superior... More

If your child is 6 and under this might be a fantastic experience. I was excited to bring my 11 year old to snow days. It's advertised as a great place to come and play in the snow. They say you can build a snowman or make snow angels. What and exaggeration! The space is the size of a postage... More

We came for a birthday party. We planned on going earlier to explore the museum. We'll definitely come back! The kids enjoyed tinkering at the Galvin Physics Forest and the Digging Deeper Gallery. The party was also fun for the kids with the games and interaction with small animals. I learned that they have different interactive activities all year round.... More

Kidspace is a great place for the kids. It's nothing really big and fancy and it is really inexpensive to go. There are plenty of scientific activities to do outside as well as inside. A lot of hands on entertainment and learning. The children will have. There is also a little part where water shoots up from the ground so... More
