One of my favorite museums to take the kids is the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center located in Balboa Park. There are so many interactive exhibits, the kids always have a blast and hopefully learn something along the way! One of my favorite areas in the museum for the little ones is Kid City. Kid City is an exciting world of fun within the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, designed especially for kids age 5 and under! Some of the highlights include:
“Ball Wall” with its multiple chutes, tracks and moving objects. Nearby, kids can direct an air blower in different directions to make musical sounds or send a set of colorful pinwheels rotating round-and-round. For young children still in the crawling stage, the infant area is a safe space for babies to move about and explore soft, sloped, and bumpy surfaces while the “Fire Truck” is a fun place for kids to turn different knobs and mimic levers similar to those found on a real fire truck.
