Celebrate Kidspace

Happy 35th birthday Kidspace!

In 1979, Kidspace was only a small group of exhibits at Caltech, and now we are 3.5 acres in Brookside Park. Over the last 35 years, 4 million children and cregivers have participated in the hands-on learning opportunities offered by the Museum's talented staff and engaging exhibits. Kidspace values children's achievement in learning milestones through exploration and discovery. Our early childhood programs provide tactile experiences that hone development in the early stages. In every exhibit children interact with one of our trained educators that ignite a child's interest in the world around them. We are looking forward to creating more interactive experiences, piloting more unique programs, and reaching even more children over the next 35 years. Kidspace is seeing one of the most exciting times in its history and we want you to join us in this journey as none of this would be possible if it was not for the generosity of contributions from friends like you.


As a 501(c)3 nonprofit community organization, Kidspace Children’s Museum depends on the contributions of individuals, corporations, and foundations to continue to provide one-of-a-kind experiences in exploration, discovery and learning. Roughly 35% of the Museum’s budget comes from people and organizations like you – eager to partner with us to help close the achievement gap between our children and children in 22 other countries.

Help us celebrate the Museum's 35th birthday by making a gift today! Your gift can help provide items like the following…


$100 – 1 month of supplies for our Early Childhood Arts Program

Please consider giving a tax-deductible gift to help the Museum continue to present unique, interactive exhibits and incomparable children’s educational programs and activities. Without the commitment of community-minded partners, the Museum would not be able to provide such an array of inspirational opportunities to so many children, their families, and educators.
