    See sea scrolls first. People don't move they and stand around waiting while more people are let in. Entire exhibit is very good.

    This place is wonderful for both kids and adults, they have interactive games in their "discovery centers" that are also educational and fun! It requires a minimum of 2 hours here, so much to see

    I remember when they remodeled this place, I was 6 and everything was so awesome! Now some parts of this museum seem kinda dirty and dated 😦

    Pompeii exhibit closes at 3:30, not 5, which is what the website says. Go early.

    Bring $10 cash for parking! If you forgot cash, the chevron down the street has an ATM.

    Trying to eat healthy? Bypass the McDonalds they have there, and go for the Grab 'n Go. They have healthier snacks there, particularly health bars that actually taste good!

    If you're there for the Pompeii exhibition, and you want to buy some of the books they have for sale about what happened to Pompeii, check Amazon first. You will likely pay MUCH less!

    State of the art facility that houses a freaking space shuttle but they haven't figured out how to take credit cards for the parking lot. Bring cash (10 bucks) to park.

    First day 10am: Take a light-rail ride on the recently opened Metro Expo Line to Exposition Park. The child-friendly California Science Center is home to the retired Space Shuttle Endeavour.

    Coming here by Metro is the best option. No parking fee (is $10 at the Museum)

    My niece loved all the interactive exhibits! Great museum type place to take kids.

    Michelle Pagaran · August 25, 2013

    Just because it's free admission doesn't mean you can let your kids run around like savages, banging all the buttons, and ruining everyone else's experience. Take the opportunity to teach & learn!

    Christi Sotomayor · August 3, 2013

    Admission is free, and you can see the space shuttle Endeavour for a nominal fee of $2.
