Out and About in LA: The California Science Center

If all of you remember, last year at Christmas I went to the California Science Center for a party at my new job. I was able to see the majesty that is the Space Shuttle Endeavour and some Kelp. But not much else which was a bit of a bummer. But now, thanks to this place being free, I can go in the Center any time I want and enjoy more of the place.

Gotta be honest, this was more kid friendly then to my liking. I mean if I was 6 years old I would’ve loved this place. But I’m actually twenty-six so a lot of this stuff was either things I already knew before going in or the place was dumbing things down way too much for adults. But hey, if you have children it’s a great stepping stone for them to learn things like ecology or space so it’s a recommendation. If you want more of a bite with your nature museums then literally go right behind this place and walk into the Natural History Museum. Or why not go next door and see the LA Coliseum? There’s a lot of great attractions in this one area of LA and since it is so close to the subway you can have a day or two with anyone and enjoy some good old history.

But for now, enjoy a sampling of what the California Science Center has to offer:
