Museums don’t all have to be stuffy affairs with bad lighting and lots of “quiet please” signs all over the place. You know the ones, the kind that kids get dragged to kicking and screaming. Instead, your children can delight in an interactive style museum with plenty of hands-on exhibits with lots of fun for the whole family. Consider a trip to the Kidspace Children’s Museum for a family-friendly, fun-filled day of education.
Located next to the famous Rose Bowl, the Kidspace Children’s Museum has so many great exhibits for everyone. Check out the new Robert and Mary Galvin Physics Forest with 13 different hands-on exhibits designed to inspire and help children become the innovators of tomorrow. You’ll find tennis ball launchers, bottle rockets, a roller coaster that your kids can help construct and so many more great exhibits.
Or check out Bugsy’s Diner and learn about the feeding habits of all the creepy crawlies an then head over to Flutterby’s Art Center to create your own work of art. There are also 40-foot climbing towers an Ant Hole and Inter-Antics Climbing area and a spot where your kids can try their own hand at becoming a paleontologist by brushing and identifying fossils.
Don’t forget to bring along your own samples of rocks, soil, shells, plant life or dead insects to trade at the Nature Exchange. You’ll earn points based on various factors, including the objects rarity and your knowledge of it. Then you can use those points to trade for other natural items at Kidspace. Be sure to research your items at home before you head over, so you get the most points for your trade.
Clearly, the Kidspace Children’s Museum is the perfect spot for a whole day of family-friendly fun. Be sure to head out to the museum in your E350 4Matic Sport Wagon from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll have plenty of room for all the kids and their friends, without losing any of that Mercedes luxury.
