Kidspace Children's Museum is in Brookside Park at 480 N. Arroyo Blvd., across from the Rose Bowl. This imaginatively designed museum with indoor and outdoor galleries and gardens covers 3.4 acres. Many of the hands-on activity areas have a science theme such as The Galvin Physics Forest or The Dig—an excavation area where kids can dig for fossils. The Outdoor Arroyo Adventure lets kids play instruments made of natural materials, climb up Hawk’s Nest, build forts and learn about the effects of floods and erosion. Harvest Corner teaches about composting and growing food.
Food is available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
