CA Science center has risen to LA! Amazing exhibits and now that the space shuttle Endeavor is there is it incredible! Whether you are with family visiting or your own family or a date, it is worth your time and effort to go. Tons of fun things to do outside as well--walk around USC, see a movie, etc. Great to live in LA!

A true National Treasure is the Space Shuttle Endeavour. Do make reservations online ($2 pp processing fee is all) for shuttle exhibit, but museum is free and does not require tickets.

Don't miss the SR-71 Blackbird parked just outside the parking structure.

Lots of great experiences, sights and sounds for young and old!

We've been here dozens of times and are never disappointed. They have a changing array of exhibits and now with the new Space Shuttle exhibit, it's even more amazing. There are things for both kids and adults, and the IMAX movies are always good. Don't miss "Christmas Island" if it comes around again. Millions of little red crabs living with the locals.....really incredible!

Don't miss your chance to see a shuttle if you are in the area. Admission to the museum is free. My shuttle ticket was only $2 service fee through my Milwaukee County Museum membership. Lots of interactive displays, mostly for kids. Enjoyed my visit.
