KidZone is a hands-on children's museum in the heart of the High Sierra. The space is designed for kids under 8 years old to learn and share experiences with the special adults in their lives through open-ended play. KidZone is open all year long and the site has an indoor space as well as an outdoor nature play area during the spring, summer and fall. Other features include a play structure, science lab, art studio and even an infant area for guests up to 18 months. Admission fees are reasonable, with free admission for members and special rates for locals on certain days. The indoor space is limited, so it's best to call ahead to check on availability on bad-weather days or during school holidays, but after more than 25 years of success and growth, the non-profit KidZone Museum is planning for a major expansion within the next few years.
