AAA Editor Notes

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 3.5 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. Storyteller Studio offers dramatic play, storytelling and art-making activities. Food is available.
$13; $10 (military with ID); free (under 1).
Hours: Tues.-Fri. 9:30-5 (also Mon. 9:30-5, mid-Mar. to mid-Sept.), Sat.-Sun. 10-5. Closed Jan. 1, July 4, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Allow 1 hour minimum.
