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.

Tips for Families

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. The science center has also added an air and space exhibit that includes some space capsules and suits. The center has great gift shop and a food court if you need a snack. Parking is ample and we paid $10.00. Plan on being there...

Amazing is all I can say.  We have been to the Discovery Science Center in the OC so many times that my kids know all of the exhibits.  This place was sooooo great!  Each of the different areas had enough exhibits so that you could really underst...

I used to teach at the elementary school next door and would take my students to the CSC often but I hadn't been back since I left the school over 5+ years ago.  More recently hubby and I were looking for things to do on a drizzly Saturday with our little one and we decided to give CSC a try. We ALL loved it!  :) I love the new ecosystems wing.  The aquarium is amazing!  My son wanted to stay forever.  We loved it so much that we went back a second weekend in a row.  On our second visit we even got to see a "show" with a diver in the aquarium.  They also have a great hands on area on the top floor where kids can build things.  And there is also the family discovery room which we thought was ok. What makes it...

FREE! FREE! FREE!!! Parking is $10 though...but still, the CSC is FREE admission! An awesome place to bring your kids, nephews, friend's kids, children for a day of play. I haven't been to the CSC in years, so I was amazed! There was plenty to do. I liked the ocean environment the best where they have an actual ocean ecosystem with divers, plenty of fish, seaweed, etc. You and your children can also touch small starfish and run around the different exhibits. Make sure there's NOT a USC game or event going on at the Coliseum or Sports Arena. I would put a few bucks into the donation bin though..afterall, it is FREE and if you roll like 4-5 deep, I'd give some $$$ back to their foundation. NOTE: If you're an a...

Is it wrong I had fun here when its obviously made for kids? Next time...I will have to drag a kid along so I don't look off.... Most important thing first its FREE. Second most important thing parking is 10 dollars (UGH ) So bring a car full of kids or find some place you can walk from to here. They got everything from a ice wall http://www.yelp.co...

The Science Center is right next to USC.  I always walked through it or around it to get to the Coliseum for football games but had never actually explored the science center. Admission is free!!  Parking is $10, but you can park around USC for free or pay a cheaper price for street parking.  The science center is pretty big and has a lot of different exhibits.  This place is great for kids since there are a lot of hands-on displays everywhere... it's a great place to get them interested in science.  As for anybody who has gone beyond middle school or high school science... I definitely would not recommend this place because you will go through the whole museum in a matter of 30 min and not get anything out ...
