This is such a great place to bring small children. We came with my nephew who is one years old and he loved it! Though I kept seeing things that would be so fun for when he’s 4 or older. For the price I’d wait until they are a bit older but a really fun spot. Bring clothes for them to get fully drenched with water.

So the munchkin and I went to an awesome fun little event put on by the USC Trojan Alumni club of the SGV https://www.facebook.com/USCClubSGV A few friends also were able to make it out and lots of children and other members of the Alumni club were also there.

So we all got in for free so I am not sure what the cost is, however there are a ton of things to do here. Exploration with insects, tunnels, physics, etc. The munchkin and a few of her friends were going non stop for several hours. Then they shut the Museum down =\ None the less the extensive play time and exploratory time made for an awesome outing.

Pro Tip: Bring your own grub/drinks so you dont have to pay three million times the proper amount for it

They have areas to draw various things. Many games. Some live animals and insects. Numerous scientific exploration activities. Giant climbing adventures and many similar items.

Pro Tip #2: Dont be a jackwagon, bring your camera!

It made my 6 yr old transport directly to Heaven and posted an ear to ear grin on her face, till they closed the park on us =(

So many things to explore, I cant more highly suggest that you check this place out if you are anywhere near it. Absolutely one of the best kids attractions that I have made it to here in LA/OC/SD. Well worth the cost of admission.

Located at the west end of Brookside Park near the Rose Bowl, the Kidspace Children's Museum occupies 2.2 acres of outdoor learning environments. Children one and older have a chance to unleash an earthquake, feed giant bugs, craft art through nature and climb raindrops. Very well supervised, it is the outstanding children's museum in Los Angeles.
