This little museum is a gem. We were staying at Terrenea and some friends recommended we stop in. It’s free to visit and a docent led us through and gave us a lot of background information. They show ... more »
We arrived at their location too late in the afternoon to visit the center's interior exhibits. We did enjoy the vista from their patio areas. Little trails and walkways also highlighted their landscaped sections. The whole effect is visually lovely. The location is outstanding, with fantastic views out over the blue Pacific. Volunteers keep watch for migrating whales. We didn't get to see any while we were there for a short while, but a whiteboard showed how many sightings that day. Their website indicates that the venue can be rented for private events. Must be a fabulous place on a warm afternoon / evening for a magical party by the sea. It doesn't hurt to have great views of the Point Vicente Lighthouse as part of the overall scene. We will have to plan a trip to spend part of a day here to check out the center during visiting hours. Lots of free parking, with abundant parkland also adjacent.
I love this place. They have a very cool free museum and lovely gardens. Look for the El Segundo Blue butterflies. If you're a tourist or just looking for cool coastal gifts check out their gift shop. They have a nice banquet room available for events also. I recommend you stop by.
