Free Admission for Kids at Southern California's Biggest Family Attractions
We can all agree that childhood goes too fast, and there are so many things that if we blink we miss: the first walk around the block, a goodbye kiss at school, getting in free at Disneyland. Those first two you can't put a price on, but that last one? That's worth about $80-$100. In other words, it's really worth keeping track of when the freebies go away. If you're working your way down our LA Kids' Bucket List, you should probably coordinate with the cut-off ages below; some of the museums you can catch on their free admission days, but several other attractions below really drive home the bittersweet point that you're only young once.
Note that the cut-off ages below imply that when a child reaches the age listed, he or she no longer qualifies for free admission.

Knotts Berry Farm
Magic Mountain & Hurricane Harbor
San Diego Zoo & Safari Park
Aquarium of the Pacific
Natural History Museum
