We let our son chose some things on the Go LA card and he wanted to go here. He went from exhibit to exhibit and back again. There are so many things for learning minds to explore and touch, and there are many things for adults to gaze at while they relax. It may not be flashy and polished with snack bars and trained animals. But if you can slow the pace down enough to enjoy nature you might enjoy this.
