Took kids; 3 and 5 years old. Went to Science Museum, Natural History Museum, butterfly exhibit, and then let the kids play in a shady portion of the rose garden. They were interested in the space shuttle itself for about two minutes but there are other things to look at there. They liked the dinosaurs and liked the butterflies. They... More

You really should take the time to visit the park's rose garden which offers a large variety of rose types. With the exceptional rains this year, the roses are really in bloom and fragrant. The garden rivals many other botanical gardens in the city and elsewhere and are well maintained.

Parked for $12 and walked around this pleasant area. The rose garden was closed but you could see the mature bushes. I enjoyed my visit to the California African American Museum and then breezed through the science museum. A nice way to spend a couple of hours. Great activity to be shared with children.

Park once & walk through several interesting exhibits! One gets interesting information germane to public school curriculum.

I was here a few days ago. We didn't even know this place existed until after we had gotten off the train at the station by USC. Very beautiful with flowers and trees. Also some airplanes on display outside. Lots of benches to rest on in the area.

The garden is just as beautiful as I remember it was about 15 years ago. The rose bushes have grown taller and the flowers render me speechless as I fall into my honeys arms...sigh of love! LOL Seriously though...I had a nice walk in the rose garden with my boyfriend. It was nice. The garden is still maintained well. I... More

Exposition Park is a regular outing for us & we ride the Metro from Culver City, it's easy & costs about $5.00. Leave the car behind. Once there we visit the Natural History Museum (& any special events like the Butterfly Garden, in season ), or the Space & Tech Museum, IMAX or walk the Rose Gardens. Fun, plus the... More

The Science Centre & Natural History Museum are must see attractions at this great Los Angeles Park - especially for those with young children. Highlights include the Space Shuttle Endeavor & lots of dinosaurs. We spent almost a full day exploring these two institutions with our ten yr old. And enjoyed a picnic lunch overlooking the Rose Garden. We accessed... More

This was my dad's go too place every Sunday afternoon when I was little. I have not been back for several years. I came to see the Dead Seas Scrolls, which was sold out-so I settled for the Rose Garden. The Rose Garden is a hidden gem hidden within all the nearby museum. There are various variety of roses, and... More

This is a beautiful park with museums and a huge rose garden. We went on July and there were plenty of roses blooming. There were many varieties and some were very fragrance. There are also hydrangeas around the park. The fountain in the middle was empty at the time. South of the garden is the California Science Center and south... More
