We’re a busy little beach town with plenty of room for you! Parking for the Curious Kids’ Museum is available in a couple of city-owned all day lots and many, many 2 and 3 hour spots near the Museum.
Parking for the Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone can also be in those all-day lots or 2-hour spots near the Curious Kids’ Museum, and you can walk the stairs or take the ramp below the bluff to Silver Beach, Whirlpool Splash Pad or Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone. Or, you can park in one of 3 paid parking lots below the bluff (closer to the Discovery Zone & beach). The parking lot for the Silver Beach Center, which houses our Discovery Zone, is $2 per hour. (Possible increase around the 4th of July).
There may be an event/group that will create an influx of traffic/visitors to the area or Museum/Discovery Zone. You’re more than welcome to call us ahead of time to find out what’s going on in and around the Curious Kids’ Museum or Discovery Zone on the day you plan to visit us!
If it’s a rainy day in the summer, plan on us being busy! Rainy days often mean an hour-long wait to enter due to the number of families visiting our area and are unable to visit the beach due to the weather. We apologize for this inconvenience but due to the fire code, we must limit admissions. We’re generally less busy on sunny days!
