Awesome place, lots to see (obviously) the space is great so it doesn't feel as crowded. Great planes showing and of course lots of information. Many areas for hands on learning for kids and adults. It was great, glad we were there to check it out. Oh and the rose garden out back is great too. Quite and beautiful.
Amazing place for everyone who love exploring about science. Suitable for family and kid. Ticket is free but if you want to see the Endeavour, ticket is $3... pretty cheap. Their small aquarium is awesome. Sometimes they have exhibitions and events, which you can update about them on their website. overall this is one of my favorite place in LA!!
