I'm always looking for the most inexpensive way to take my kids out to explore. We saw that the San Luis Obispo Children's Museum was having their "Moonlight Hours" where anyone could come visit that night from 5pm - 8pm for FREE so we took advantage of it! Here are the photos that we took from our free San Luis Obispo Children's Museum visit below.

With three floors, my 4 year old and 2 year old sons were so excited and thrilled! We started with the 3rd floor via elevator and worked our way down. The top two floors were great for babies and toddlers and the first floor was very appropriate for bigger kids (like elementary age). When the next free Moonlight Hours are announced, they will be listed here on the Family-friendly event list.

Address of the museum is: 1010 Nipomo St., San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
