The New Galvin Physics Forest at Kidspace!

Kidspace Children's Museum in Pasadena opened a new expansion this month and we just couldn't wait to get our exploration on! The Galvin Physics Forest offers 13 new and exciting hands-on exhibits created to inspire children to be the innovators and creators of tomorrow. With my oldest recently learning about Science and Physics in 1st grade, we were really excited to see what he would get from the Forest.
There are so many different hands-on exhibits within this Forest. Each of my 3 children ran in different directions. All with their own ideas of how they wanted to explore the Physics Forest. There was the Ball Bounce, Giant Lever, Ball Range, Roller Coaster and Pendulum. All of which challenged their bodies as well as their minds!

And that's not all! We also learned about Bottle Rockets, Air Cannons and Pulleys!

After a wonderful time exploring physics, we were off to enjoy some water play!

We found a wildlife pond in the arroyo and did a little gardening. Jackson got caught in a spider web!

We dried off on the trike track!

Finally, we checked out all of the cool indoor exhibits like Bugsy's Diner & the Ant Hole!

Kidspace is one of our most favorite places to visit, especially during our hot Summer months. Make sure to visit the Galvin Physics Forest this Summer and plan on spending an entire day exploring!
Thank You Kidspace!!!

    1. My youngest is 3yrs old and he refused to leave! The first time we visited KidSpace my kids were 1, 2 & 5. They even have a toddler playground outdoors. The water play alone is worth a visit :)
