Free Museum Day in Southern California

A few weeks ago, my friends and I ventured out to Downtown Los Angeles to take advantage of Free Museum Day in Southern California.

We headed out to mainly visit the California ScienCenter (which is apparently free every day anyway) and the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

I haven’t been to the ScienCenter in almost 20 years. Yeah, it’s been that long. Of course, my appreciation for the sciences weren’t as developed then as it is now. My favorite part of the main part of the ScienCenter was definitely the World of Life exhibit. There’s a little section of it where they actually show video of a real heart surgery (albeit quite dated and short). So cool.

But, the absolute best part of the entire ScienCenter was being able to see the Space Shuttle Endeavour up close. What a breathtaking experience. People of all ages would definitely enjoying giving that part of the museum a good walk through. They even have the Endeavour’s tires on display, they’re absolutely monstrous. One thing I wish though was that they’d let us touch the darn thing. Of course, my conspiracy theory of a brain went there. If I can’t touch it, it can’t be real.


When we were done with the ScienCenter, we planned on hitting up the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, which was next door. Problem was that the line was from here to Timbuktu. It was quite ridiculous. So, we ended up getting in line for the Elote Lady because we saw a bunch of people going to town eating those amazing things. It’s been years since I’ve had elote, and it was every bit of amazing as I remember it to be.

Before heading on home, we made one more stop at the California African American Museum. What a hidden gem. Biggest take away from there is I’m never using the word picnic again.


Hope everyone’s having a wonderful Presidents’ Day Weekend. Til next time.
