Free Family Night

The first Tuesday of each 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, exploring medium, style, or skill through activities and special guests. Expect crowds and long admission lines during the spring and summer months. Themed activities will be facilitated between 4:30 and 7:30pm. (Note: A limited number of RSVP tickets are offered to Goldstar members each month, but their quantities do not reflect Kidspace capacity.)
