California Science Center Welcomes Endeavour

Los Angeles welcomes the space shuttle Endeavour, which touched down at Los Angeles International Airport on September 21. The Endeavour completed 25 missions into space, including the first service mission to the Hubble Space Telescope, cementing its place in American history. The Endeavour is one of only four space shuttles on display in the U.S. and the only shuttle on the West Coast.

On October 12, the shuttle will depart LAX and make its way through the streets of Los Angeles to reach its permanent home, the California Science Center. The Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion at the California Science Center will open to the public on October 30, offering guests a chance to view the shuttle up close. Guests will begin their experience by visiting Endeavour: The California Story, a companion exhibit featuring images and artifacts that relate the shuttle program to California, where the orbiters were built. The California Story gallery will also feature components that flew into space with Endeavour, such as Endeavour’s potty, galley and the tires from STS-134, Endeavour’s final mission, for guests to see up close.

Visit their ticket information page for details on how to get timed tickets to see Endeavour on display in the Pavilion.
