Incredible thing that many people don't know about this place... Admission is free at the California Science Center. Wow! And it's such a nice place.
The only catch... you'll have to pay for parking which is $8 per car. Not too bad, I guess.
It's a good idea to pick a good time when visiting the California Science Center since at times it may get a crowded. I heard that during a weekday, times before noon and little after, can get a little crowded from field trips and students visiting.
We went around 3PM, and basically the whole museum was to ourselves. There weren't that many people walking around, and we had a good time.
There's a lot of cool exhibits here at the California Science Center. I particularly liked their marine exhibit where you can touch shellfishes, and stare at the huge aquarium. They also had insect exhibits, and geology exhibits which were all very interesting.
Basically, with so much to see, this is definitely an awesome place to visit with your family, friends, or loved ones. And if you're willing to spend some money, the IMAX 3D movies that they have here are amazing too. Their movies are all educational in nature, but the 3D effects are super cool.
We saw the Hubble, and it was one of the best movies I saw - maybe in my life. :)
Well, so next time, you have some time, or need to find something to do, try checking out the California Science Center in Los Angeles.
