I approach science museums like a five-year-old who has not yet learned to read, but likes to push all the buttons and pull all the levers to see what will happen. I'm too ADD to read all the explanations, but I'm all about using a pulley to lift a car or pedaling a bike to generate electricity, and the California Science Center is a great place to DO stuff.

One of the top science museums in the country, the California Science Center at Exposition Park has interactive exhibits that appeal to both children and adults. Permanent exhibits focused on living things, inventions and aerospace are augmented with temporary exhibits on all manner of scientific subjects. The Science Center is one of the Top FREE Things to Do in LA. However, special exhibits may have a fee, which is sometimes quite high and can require an advance reservation.

The California Science Center also has a 7-story IMAX Theater that screens multiple films each day. There is an additional fee for each IMAX movie.
