Just one of those things I had to tick off my list now that I’m in tourist mode. To see a real space shuttle in a museum is highly recommended.
The Endeavour’s current resting place is in the California Science Center located in Exposition Park, LA. You can get there via Metro light blue line (light rail), and it stops outside the Science Center. There is no admission fee to see the shuttle, but there is a booking fee of $2. The booking fee is waived if you purchase an IMAX ticket to see a movie at the venue. I would suggest booking in advance via their website since the visiting the shuttle is organised by timed visits.
I never got a chance to see it being towed in on the streets towards the museum, and didn’t capture good close up photos of it when it was piggybacking a jumbo jet on a fly.
Make sure you bring a wide angle lens, perfect opportunity! I had to make do with my 18-55mm kit lens only.
