The afternoon kicks off with a visit to the California Science Center's new exhibit, Endeavour: The California Story, which illustrates the NASA shuttle program's connection to California and displays artifacts that flew aboard Endeavour. Immediately following, we will enter the Samuel Oschin Pavilion to see the shuttle up close. Learn more about the exhibit experience.
