KidTrip - California Science Center

Formally, Museum of Science and Industry

The California Science Center is located in the heart of LA right across from the USC campus.
Admission to the museum is FREE! Parking will cost $8 per vehicle.

I have memories of field trips here when I was in grade school and I always remembered the Air and Space Museum building. So Since we are on the subject of "space" I thought it would be fun to revisit it.

Zorro LOVED the hands on approach to this museum! Unfortunately because of massive LA traffic due to a USC game (Ya, I pick my days well...) our time was cut short by an hour. We simply did not have enough time to enjoy the many things this museum and the other buildings and floors had to offer. But it was a great visit and we will be back with some better planning!

As a special treat in our way out we got some "Astronaut Food" (as Zorro called it). I used to buy freeze dried ice cream when we visit as a child and I thought it would be fun for Zorro too. He loved it!

*As a side note there are many many different exhibits and things to see not just air and space!*

I remember going to the science museum in Sacramento, or maybe San Fransisco as a kid. I loved that place.

Neat! We took Anna to the Museum of Aviation History (unfortunately, not free) last year, and she still has some memory of it. This museum looks very cool - love the picture of Zorro in the flying craft.
