Free Family Night

The first Tuesday of the 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. On these special nights, Kidspace will promote family learning about the arts, while emphasizing the diverse cultures and communities present in Greater Los Angeles. Expect crowds and long admission lines during the spring and summer months. Themed activities will be facilitated between 4:30 and 7:30pm. (Note: There is no Free Family Night in September. A limited number of RSVP tickets are offered to Goldstar members each month, but their quantities do not reflect Kidspace capacity.)


Tuesday, July 2 - Discover Music

Practice being a musician, making art inspired by music, and appreciating music as an audience! Find your rhythm in a 'found object' band, make a simple instrument, and listen to the Pasadena Conservatory of Music's Brass Trio presentation of "The Maestro Plays" at 6:00pm in Stone Hollow Amphitheater.



Tuesday, August 6 - Discover The Art of Food

Make art with food, practice your piping skills, and learn the tips and tricks of napkin folding. Watch as food is created with balloons and hear about what it takes to be a balloon artist at 6:00pm in Stone Hollow Amphitheater.
