Tips for Families

Bring cash and keep a lookout for stand-alone experiences like wall climbing and hurricane simulators. And stop by the gift shop and get your kids a pack of space food. They will be fascinated.

Take the new Expo line. It drops you 100 yards from the Science center. Adult fares are $1.50 and kids under 5 are free.

Been here with the kids many times for various events as well as just for family fun. Admission is free except for selected special exhibits. Last night however, we had the opportunity to attend a special event held there for the Los Angeles Clippers. My kids are huge Basketball fans and were thrilled to mingle with all of the LA Clippers, including Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.  We enjoyed the newest addition to the museum which includes an aquarium and some fun ecosystem exhibits.
