    I grew up in Pasadena and went to original Kidspace. In the 2000s, they relocated here to Brookside Park, where the Rose Bowl is. There is a lot of great outdoor activities for kids, including riding ...  more »

    Pretty cool place, my boy was interested in most of the climbing stuff. They liked the park that was outside of the kidspace area. There wasn't much supplies to go around the shooting games and the "roller coaster". The bigger kids just push their way to get all the supplies, balls, etc. There was mainly groups that go there so there was like 1 tour guide to 10-20 kids so it looked like a free for all. Overall it seemed like my little buddy had a good day.

    An awesome place to hang out all day for the kids. Educational games and crafts! Super fun outdoor activity gardens that engages and stimulates. Will need to spend the ENTIRE day here to experience everything this place has to offer!

    Awesome place for kids to spend all day. Inside and outside areas. Water, mud, blocks, music,...so many different activities! Friendly staff. I suggest getting the ASTC passport museum pass and you can get two adults and two children in for free.

    Kidspace Museum is a godsend to exhausted parents of toddlers and young kids. Bring a change of clothes since your kids will get wet pretty fat, but plan to spend the day. There is restaurant that serves food kids will eat, and lots of outdoor activities as well as things to do and explore indoors. Cute gift shop as well. Awesome playground near the parking lot as well.

    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).
