Space Shuttle Endeavour, Los Angeles

Currently on display in the Samuel Oschin Pavilion at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, Space Shuttle Endeavour was the fifth and final operational shuttle built by NASA. Between 1992 to 2011, Space Shuttle Endeavour spent a total of 296 days, 3 hours, 34 minutes, and 2 seconds in space over the course of 25 missions.

Seeing a space shuttle up close is pretty awe-inspiring. Endeavour still wears the damage from her final re-entry through the Earth's atmosphere, which only further emphasizes the reality of standing in the same room with something that has left our planet and come back again. It's not only a technological marvel, but with the shuttle program now retired, Endeavour is symbolic of a prolific and bygone era in space travel and exploration.
