Starting September 17, Kidspace Children’s Museum is offering a flurry of fall programs for families.
“We’re excited to finally begin to open our indoor galleries for families,” said Chief Executive Officer Lisa Clements. “We are celebrating with special exhibits and programs that are new to Kidspace, alongside beloved features such as the Ant Tunnel and the Dino Dig area.”
The fun kicks off with the Mighty Build Guild on September 17, a lively construction crew of builders, stackers, and designers of all ages. Children and their families are invited to create marvelous geometric towers, design cardboard critters, and play and explore in a whimsical cardboard arroyo, which showcases a fantastical cardboard flying machine created by Los Angeles artist, Wayne White.
You might be sssurprised to find just how much you enjoy learning about snakes in the Nature Exchange during our Sssensational Sssnakes exhibition, which features hands-on props and interactive experiences to explore how snake jaws are designed to swallow large prey, how rattles work, and how snakes use their scutes (don’t know what that is? You will!). You can interact with a life-sized snake puppet to learn more about snakes, and even meet a real snake up close during our daily Animal Encounters.
Feeling inspired? Your family can register for a free family program in our Imagination Workshop to build a cardboard snake puppet and explore concepts of anatomy, movement, and character design. Then, take your snake puppet home with you to continue the fun.
Coming soon — look for news about our fabulous Halloween and Winter Frolic events, and the launch of our very first winter camp! Members get in free every day and enjoy early access and special discounts. For more information about becoming a Kidspace Children’s Museum member, visit kidspacemuseum.org/membership.
