    It's like a visit to Jurassic Park, we were supposed to go to academy award museum but they wouldnt let my son in (really) two years after covid while no masks are required in public places in CA...so we headed out of the parking lot and followed our noses to the Pits. It is so cool, after 4/430 pm its half price and you can do the museum in thirty minutes without the show. The last show was 4 so we missed it, but this place is out of this world.. Oil is still bubbling to the surface in the lagoons, and over 1 M (yes million) fossils have been pulled from the pits. So lumber on over, La Brea tar pits is great fun for young raptors to old geezersaurus

    My husband and I were in LA for a few days and one of the things I wanted to see was the space shuttle. Mission accomplished!! Seeing the space shuttle upclose and personal, you realize how huge the thing is! There's a short film that you have to see. It's a film on the transport of the shuttle from the air force base to the museum. You cannot go into the shuttle but there is a live streamed of the inside of the shuttle. Outside of the building that houses the shuttle is an orange fuel tank. There are also exhibits to see from tires of the shuttle to a space toilet. A must if you're in the area.

    The California Science Center had an exhibit on Cambodia's Angor Wat. It was a well designed, easy to follow route through the exhibit, which had amazing statues and informative signs.
    There are a few places to get something to eat and drink with plenty of outdoor seating.
    After lunch, we went to the IMAX theater, just outside of the Science Center's main entrance. We attended a 3-D showing, "Under the Sea," narrated by Jim Carrey. Because we were all wearing 3-D glasses, my granddaughter and the rest of the audience gasped at the sea animals seeming to be coming off the screen heading straight for us! Amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed our day at the California Science Center.
