We are excited to welcome your family back safely for our 25th Annual Butterfly Season, an all-outdoor celebration of spring. The museum will operate a little differently at first with changes to comply with all Pasadena, county, state, and CDC guidance. Our capacity will be reduced; indoor exhibits will be closed; reservations and masks will be required; cleaning has been enhanced. But there will be giggles, splashing, outdoor adventures, and some fun butterfly surprises for you, too!
All admission to Kidspace will be reserved through our new timed ticketing system which allows us to control attendance to better facilitate physical distancing. We will operate at a significantly reduced capacity, so tickets will be limited. Members will enjoy special preview days and reserve their free tickets through the same system.
Please review our safety and experience information on this page before reserving your tickets.
When visiting Kidspace
Wear a mask
Face coverings are required to be properly worn over the nose and mouth by all staff and guests age two and up, except when eating or drinking in designated areas. Bandanas, neck gaiters, or masks with exhalation valves or holes do not protect others and are not acceptable face coverings.
We are limiting tickets so everyone can safely spread out. We ask all guests to maintain six feet of physical distance with staff and visitors from other households. Guests from the same household may remain together. Children must stay with their guardians at all times.
Portions of the campus are designated for one-way traffic. For everyone’s safety, we ask all guests to please follow signage and staff instructions.
Practice good physical hygiene, wash or sanitize hands frequently. Hand sanitizing stations have been installed throughout our campus for guest and staff use.
Kidspace staff will be actively cleaning high-touch surfaces before, during, and after your visit.

Know Before You Visit
As part of our phased reopening, indoor galleries remain temporarily closed.
- In accordance with governmental health orders, physical distancing and face covering are required to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, even if all protocols are followed, increased risks of exposure to COVID-19 exist during any visit to a public place. Los Angeles County, the City of Pasadena, and Kidspace strongly encourage people with pre-existing health conditions to remain at home and postpone their visit until the risks of COVID-19 have subsided.
- Museum admission is non-refundable and non-transferable.
- Certain exhibits, programming, or activities may be modified, unavailable, or may have reduced capacity.
- Although our café food service is suspended, you may eat with your own household in designated areas.

Museum Cleaning Procedures
Kidspace actively works with public health and medical experts to develop rigorous cleaning protocols for our exhibits and facilities.
The museum is deep cleaned nightly with non-toxic hospital-grade cleaning products. Our remodeled restrooms are fully touchless, and we have installed new hand sanitizing stations throughout campus. During operating hours, you will see our custodial services regularly disinfecting high-touch surfaces on a continuous cycle.
