California Science Center
Not all of Los Angeles’ big ticket attractions come with a hefty entry fee. The California Science Center offers free general admission to its permanent exhibit galleries – World of Life, Creative World, Ecosystems and Air & Space Exhibits, the latter being the home for the space shuttle Endeavour. Learn about human inventions and innovations, the life process of living things or immerse the kids (under 7) in hands-on experiences in the Discovery Rooms. Budding scientists can also get involved in ‘Science Saturdays’ (for a charge), held throughout the year and covering a suite of topics such as Light & Sound and Forensic Science.
