Kidspace Returns to Arroyo Seco Weekend for 2018


Holiday Shopping with Busy Bee

‘Tis the season once again to find the best toys and books for our kids! The Busy Bee Learning Store at Kidspace is not only a gift shop for daily guests at the museum and its members, but also a great community shopping resource. Our goal in the Busy Bee Learning Store is to inspire play, engage families in learning together, and promote Kidspace's mission of nurturing the potential of all children. You will find our store jam-packed with books, toys, and plush for infants to age 10.

Water and Fog and Lights…Oh, My!

"Kidspace is where my son and I often spend our Wednesday afternoons. His favorite thing is water play, so bringing back the fountains would thrill him!" Joellyn shared this comment when she made a Bring Back the Splash! gift online.
