The California Science centre is a massive building and comes with it own imax theatre. The museum itself is free to explore and there were heaps of exhibits to see, i had a go in the tornado machine and I got to experience what an earthquake would feel like but obviously the main reason I was here was for the Egyptian exhibit and it seriously was cool...There were hundreds of artefacts on display, all of which had been found at the bottom of the sea at the port in Alexandria, Egypt
The natural history museum was the next stop for me and this place is just even bigger then the science centre and is full of dinosaur displays and mammals from North and South Africa. The museum was very interactive and had heaps of hands on displays and i got to see a dinosaur puppet show which was actually really cool but now that I'm typing it just sounds lame! By now it was already 3pm and I had eaten yet so I figured id take the metro into downtown LA ad try to get something to eat there.
Well what can I say about downtown LA.....nothing much really, it really is just a business district and so on the weekend it was dead...there were hardly any people there and there were even fewer cars and so trying to find something to eat was just nearly impossible. I did however get to see the Walt Disney concert hall...I kinda stumbled on that by accident so that was pretty cool to see. I managed to get something to eat at Subway and then decided to call it a day and head back home BUT not before stopping off at Maccas and grabbing a LARGE chocolate thick shake and a s'mores pie ( Best thing ever!!! )
Back home and relaxing and getting ready to organise the full on week ahead....Hollywood blvd and Universal studios!!!
