tanarill: (Science!)
This actually happened on the Friday after Thanksgiving, but I have been lazy and not posted about it. So now I am posting about it.

On that Friday, my family went in to LA, to go to the Science Center. It is interesting because it is a whole complex of museums, centered around a common, underground parking structure. We only visited the science museum, but it would take quite a lot of time to go through all of them. Perhaps I will go back and go to the cultural museum, which looked interesting, or the natural history museum, which I have no doubt takes advantage of LA's La Brea tar pits to get dead post-dinosaur pre-human things.

Anyway. We got tickets to two exhibits: the space shuttle Endeavour, and the Cleopatra exhibit. It was in that order, and if I had the day to do again I'd give myself more than an hour between the two, because the Endeavour definitely deserved more time.

So that was the Endeavour. If you happen to be in this part of the world, or a different part of the world that also has a retired shuttle, I high recommend you go see it. It's worth it.

Just give yourself a whole lot longer than an hour.
