Plan your visit to a fun interactive kid museum, the California Science Center in Los Angeles, this is one of my go-to experiences for my boys. It’s always a great place to cool down on the hot summer days, and learn something new.
There are many hands-on educational activities throughout the museum, don’t worry if you have little ones. Which is also the biggest museum in the city, and has a beautiful outdoor patio and grass area to hang out. As you wander around the science center you’ll notice the endless interactive displays that your toddlers will love. You’ll learn about humans in space, check out an astronaut suit and satellites!
Discovery Rooms for Little Learners
There are plenty of resting areas to sit and enjoy a few minutes for your kids to play. I love the 2nd floor that is full of activities that can occupy the my kids for hours. By sharing toys with other children, interacting with different building tables and puzzles. They learn social skills, plus cool science innovations to help them explore their first explorations with building.
Older children and adults can also have fun with all of the hands on demonstrations and play time. There is plenty of seating throughout the museum for parents to view the activity center. All while your children are entertained and you can catch a break to soak in the fun facts that you’ve learned. The California Science Center has plenty of Air and Space inspirational activities so that your kids can explore what it’s like to be an astronaut and fly into space!
Ecosystems for Interactive Learning
With so many permanent exhibits, you visit them all in one day, or take your time and plan multiple trips. Learn about space, ecosystems, creative world and so much more. I personally love that you can take go from one science subject to another with hands on learning. You won’t get bored!
