Although Exposition Park has a number of attractions, we set ourselves to check out the Endeavor space shuttle that was housed in the California Science Center. Since Endeavor, sitting on the back of a 747 plane, flew over the San Francisco Bay Area last year, it was a must-see on our trip.
Who could imagine that for 11 of of us that we only paid $22.00 to get in, which did not include IMAX.
To visit the Endeavor exhibit, it consisted of two parts and they are self-paced. You go through an area of exhibits, photos, and videos of the astronauts as they lived in the space shuttle and performed experiments. Optionally you can stay to watch this video of how they got the Endeavor from the airport to the museum, which was 60+ hours non-stop.
Then you move onto this huge room, a hangar where the Endeavor is housed in a landing position. When you first walk in, seeing it takes your breath away and everyone is snapping away pictures. You could spend a good afternoon in checking out photos and exhibits and listening to volunteers.
This exhibit is work in progress. They plan to erect the space shuttle in a take-off position and open it so that you could see its interior.
We did check out other exhibits, which kind of remind me of parts of Monterey Bay Aquarium and California Academy of Science in San Francisco.
Eating options included McDonald's and an area where you could purchase pre-made sandwiches and salads.
