Although I saw the original LA exhibit many years ago, the CSC did a fantastic job on this presentation.

its a great place to educate the kids, and free of charge but you need to pay a small amount of $ to see the space shuttle (its just your choice). the rest is great anyway.

The building and exhibitions was great. We even caught an IMAX on space which was awesome l. Fairly priced for entry, food and refreshments, even the gift store was reasonable.

Yes, they do not have every piece of the tut tomb. But if you do your research you will know what to expect. These pieces are so amazing and such beautiful priceless pieces of history. To move such amazing artifacts is a feat all alone....More

A minimum of two hours for King Tut and an additional two hours for the shuttle would be my suggestion. It varies, of course, depending upon the individual. Have fun!

When TUT first visited the US the mask was in the mix of all things tomb. But now--not in the display. If you are intent on seeing the mask--wait a while. A new museum is being built to hold all things Tut and when it opens... More
