    It was crowded, so tough to have fun. Might be more fun when it is not so crowded.

    2/3 outdoors, which works for LA weather. Best for kids 3.5 to 6 or so.

    Contrary to what their website says, do NOT bring your doggy. They hate them.

    The water stream outside is so awesome! Kids can walk in the water and down the stream as long as they have water shoes on.

    Don't forget to leave time to play at the park outside the museum. Great place to dry off after the water play.

    Be sure to explore the outside areas. There's so much to see & do! Take a walk up the hill and see the stream, water wheel, climbing wall, & more! Set aside a full day to spend here. More info below. Read more

    The gardens might be closed if there's an event. For the Pumpkin Festival and Halloween, they had a pumpkin and egg hunt for kids in the gardens. Call ahead to make sure the gardens are open.

    Another great thing to do in the LA area even if you are a visitor. Not that it is better than the big theme parks, but your kids will probably have a great time and talk about it as much as those bi

    Bring your own food: the cafe is overpriced! If you have to buy food the chicken ceasar wrap is worth the money!
