Weekday mornings are crowded with field trip visits, so go after 1:30 on weekdays or on weekends.

The California Science Center is also crowded on the first Tuesday of the month when the next-door Natural History Museum is free.

Check in to the Information Desk to pick up the day's schedule of events.

To prep for your visit, let your kids spend some time on the California Science Center's online Fun Lab.

You could spend a whole day at the California Science Center, but if you're looking for something else to do for free in the neighborhood, you can visit the California African American Museum or the Exposition Park Rose Garden, both free.
