  • This place is one of the best places for kids. They have a combination of all things that your kids need to enjoy and have a great day. The parking is free and food is acceptable. The ticket is 14$. It’s good for age 4 to 10 maybe. Kids can touch everything and get a very good experience there. I’ve taken my son many places around the LOS Angeles but he likes this place more than the others. Design and furniture are good and in kids standard.
  • One of the best children's museums I've explored...and moving around the country, my kids and I have explored a lot. Set apart by its extensive outdoor space and especially its hands-on (and feet-on! Bring water shoes and swimsuits) arroyo with running water. Also check out the huge science- and experiment-oriented yard. Caters for kids of all ages, from infant to big kid.
  • Aloha! Very nice and simple place for kids to have fun. Well maintained and staff are friendly. My crazy kids had fun and entertained. That is all that mattered to me today because they were so hyper.
  • Great outdoor spaces with the perfect sprinkle of water features. The inside spaces are a little limited especially when it's packed with folks. Older kids (8+) may get a little bored and be forced to use their creative minds for an unscripted adventure. Best times to go are in the mornings on weekdays (non-holidays).
  • This place is amazing . It is in nature with all kind of fun stuff for kids . It has entertainment for ages 1- 9 . Mostly for 2-6. It is a bit pricy but if you live close by to make a trip more than 2 times a year it well worth it to buy a family pass and make it a fun day out with your little one once in a while .
