    Bowers Museum

    2002 N. Main St. Santa Ana, CA 92706
    714-567-3600 The Bowers Museum is in Santa Ana. After a couple of massive expansions, it has renovated that earlier reputation, putting its exhibitions on par with anything by the boys with the big endowments. A dynamite Benjamin Franklin exhibit earlier this year, mummies from the Silk Road touring show, rare Rembrandt etchings, samurai art from the Tokyo National Museum, American quilts and some of China's Terra Cotta Warriors are just a few of what we've been able to feast our eyes on, and the impressive list doesn't appear to be ending any time soon. The Bowers is a shining example of what a board of directors (headed by the forward thinking Dr. Peter C. Keller), generous benefactors and a deep respect for the diversity of multiple cultures can do for a (once-) small community museum. And the best person there is Julie Perkins-Lee, who helps out archiving stuff and is a wonderful person! More >>

    Discovery Science Center

    2500 N. Main St. Santa Ana, CA 92705
    714-542-2823 The Discovery Science Center is a kid’s museum in Santa Ana. Admit it: The first time you drove past that giant, angled black cube beside Interstate 5, you thought the actual kids' museum it belongs to was inside. Later, maybe you caught the light shining through it, realized it was hollow, and wondered what the point was. Did the designer of the Discovery Center just really, really like Pink Floyd and somehow figured kids could learn about the actual dark side of the moon? Turns out it's actually a massive solar-panel array that powers the museum—if you pay admission, you can find out all the groovy details and, yes, even get inside it. If solar power is indeed the future, could it be that one day we'll all have trippy black cubes attached to our homes? We can but hope. All this said, the Discovery Center does have good exhibits for kids and adults alike. More >>

    Heritage Museum of Orange County

    3101 W. Harvard St. Santa Ana, CA 92704
    714-540-0404 The Heritage Museum of Orange County is in Santa Ana. Walking through the grounds of this 1-acre historical plaza is like taking a trip back to the late 19th Century, when Orange County was basically just Santa Ana and a lot of orange groves. The centerpiece of the museum's well-preserved grounds is the Kellogg House, named after Hiram Clay Kellogg, a civil engineer who helped to create the footprint of modern Orange County by surveying orange groves and carving the land into the oversized squares that have now been filled with boundless surburban tracts. Thankfully, the sprawl Kellogg helped spawn hasn't swallowed up his former Victorian-era abode and the beautiful gardens, trails and native habitat that surround it. His house is now used for teaching kids the mechanics of old-timey OC life, such as handicrafts, blacksmithing and butter-making. There are also interactive adventures that provide children with the opportunity to see how gold-rush-era migrants, as well as the indigenous people they displaced, lived. More >>
