The main objective of the visit is to see the space shuttle Endeavour. But there is a lot more to explore at the California Science Centre. Check out those spacesuits from Project Mercury and Apollo..... more

It was great to see the space shuttle up close. Free after 3pm. Very educational displays. Love the variety of the exhibits The journey of the shuttle from the airport to the museum is amazing to see. Great movie and there is a virtual ride that last 7 minutes for a fee. There are 3 levels grab a map a start your adventure!!!
The big attraction here is the shuttle, for obvious reasons. It is truly amazing to see it so close and have a sense of its massive dimensions. The rest of the museum is fine, but nothing spectacular. Still, it is worth visiting if your group has some young kids and you can expect to spend about 90 minutes visiting the museum (maybe some additional 30 minutes if you decide to stop by every exhibit). Parking is easily available in front of the museum.
