We love coming here, both for exhibitions and just for the center itself. We ususally go to the IMAX movies right next to the center as well, since this gives us free entrance to the Endeavour space s... more »
This museum/science center is not that big, and located near the LA Memorial Coliseum. The most exciting item on display here is the Endeavour Space Shuttle. It is a dream come true for me to finally see the space shuttle in person. The other displays are also quite nice, but not nearly that special as the space shuttle. They have a good museum store as well.
My family and I love it here! There's interactive exhibits & it's fun enough to be educational but not boring for the younger ones. You can pay extra to check out the space center but you can still have a fun time without. Be prepared to walk a lot because this place is HUGE, with each exhibit taking up a good amount of room in the center. There's a food court here too since you can't bring outside food or drinks in but it's either tacos or pizza. Overall, it's a good way to spend a couple of hours if you want to learn something new.
