Extend the Classroom Beyond Its Walls: Book Your Early Childhood Field Trips TODAY!


The mission of SCCM is to cultivate a child’s wonder, stimulate curiosity, and motivate learning through interactive exhibits, creative experiences and dramatic play, all while promoting the diverse cultures of Southern California.


Located in the heart of Pasadena, we offer child-initiated learning through play and promotes socialization through thoughtfully-designed, developmentally appropriate experiences. There are countless opportunities for children to integrate their prior knowledge and draw meaningful connections.


We offer a variety of learning environments:

  • Traveling Exhibits (currently featured are Healthier Ever After and Monkey King)
  • Pretend and Dramatic Play Areas
  • Imagination and Tegu Block Areas
  • Sensory Stations
  • Book Nook
  • Clay Corner/Art Area


SCCM has current availability for field trips to be scheduled on Tuesdays! Other days of the week may be accommodated with prior notice. Field trips include a brief introduction from the Museum team and use of our reserved indoor picnic-style lunch area. Activities for your students can be arranged for an additional fee. One adult chaperone is required for every five children present.


Please call 626.657.0357 or email with questions or to reserve your field trip!


“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning.” Mr. Fred Rogers
