- Things to Do
In Brookside Park next to the historic Rose Bowl, Kidspace Children’s Museum is an industry leader in the field of informal, free choice learning whose mission is to nurture the potential of all children through kid-driven experiences, inspiring them to become joyful, active learners.
In its 40-year history, Kidspace has brought families together to learn and play, serving over 5-million guests in the greater Los Angeles area. Located on nearly three and a half acres in Pasadena, California, Kidspace Children’s Museum has more than 40 hands-on exhibits, beautiful outdoor spaces, programs, and special events that are designed to encourage a child’s growth through exploration of natural environments, investigation in science, and artistic expression.
An incredible place of learning and discovery, the purpose of a children’s museum is to inspire children to learn and grow, equip parents and teachers, and to be a safe place where learners of all abilities can do so at their own pace and focus on topics of interest to them. This is often referred to as “Free Choice Learning.” What makes children’s museums different from a school is the approach to informal education. We believe in giving our guests hands-on experiences that are relevant and inspiring.
