California Science Center Tours

California Science Center
A joint project between the State of California and the California Science Center Foundation, this is the largest interactive science center on the West Coast. Home to an IMAX theater, the Space Shuttle Endeavour and much more, the Center is a comprehensive tour through the world of science.

Permanent exhibits here include explorations of ecosystems and how they work (or don’t); the survival processes of all living things; feats of engineering, technology and other inventions; and air and space exhibits (where you’ll find the Endeavour). Outside, you’ll find an outdoor sculpture garden with several interactive details like mosaic tiles that impart scientific knowledge, and high above the Center’s entrance, visitors can ride a bicycle that’s been carefully balanced on a high wire.

Practical Info:

Admission to the Center is free of charge, but IMAX movie prices vary from $5 - 8.25. Set in Exposition Park, where parking is $10 (street parking is limited), the Center is adjacent to the Natural History Museum, the African American Museum and a rose garden that blooms from early spring through the late fall. It’s possible to make an entire museum day out of your visit to the California Science Center.

The best route to take by transit is the Metro Expo Line to the Metro Park/USC Station. The Science Center is located 0.2 miles walking distance from the station, on the south side of the Rose Garden.
Address: 700 Exposition Park Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90037, USA
Hours: Mon-Sun 10am-5pm
