Free Family Nights

The first Tuesday of every month from 4:00 to 8:00pm is Kidspace's Free Family Night.  Admission to the Museum is FREE for everyone during these hours only. Families can engage with special programming and performers that highlight cultures and traditions from around the world. Expect crowds and long admission lines during the spring and summer months. (Note: July 2017 Free Family Night is 2nd Tuesday of the month due to the 4th of July holiday.)
