A great change of pace!

A great place for the little ones to explore and let their creative juices flow! A nice change of pace on the way out of Tahoe.

Admission is $8 for everyone, which I felt was a bit pricey. It is small my daughter(age 4) was done after 2 hrs, we didn't do outdoor things due to rain. I felt it was a bit squished, seemed to clear out around 12:00 though. Only open from 10-1:30 so plan accordingly. You can take lunches in.

Checked for address on their website as we drove into Truckee. Not open after 1:30 in summer, according to the site. We have 2 disappointed preschoolers.

Hard to find because of all the construction in the area. The kids loved playing and climbing. Not too big. Hour and a half was plenty of time inside. Never made it outside but did not see to much out there.

The place is small, but packed with fun for the kids. We had a membership and got our money's worth. Hoping to get another membership soon.

Located near the high school this kids "museum" has lots of fun hands on things for young children. Has train table, magnets, large blocks. A wonderful rainy day activity.

Our grandchildren enjoyed all the many hands on exhibits from the large train track to the plane and the outside exploration. They were able to put on rain boots and splash in small creeks. Great fun.

This place has a ton of fun things for such a small operation. My son loves the indoor play set as well as the real airplane to check out. However, the best part is the outdoor items such as play pond, sand box and musical items built from metal which all are way less used than the indoor items. If... More

I really love Kid Zone. I have taken my son here for years & he enjoys the art area, themed play area (sometimes it's under the sea, sometimes it's aviation, etc.), indoor playground, train table, magnets & oversized blocks. It's been a LIFESAVER in the cold, snowy months when you've got to get your child out of the house to... More

Perfect spot to have fun with your kids. They have an art room, play room, slide/climbing structure and tons for your kids to do. It's a perfect place to bring your kids during bad weather. Very fun and entertaining. My kids love it!!
