A little different kind of event but no less enjoyable. First we got a private tour of the Los Angeles Fire Museum followed by a great lunch at a Mediterranean Restaurant and fun afternoon at Columbia Memorial Space Center.  

Los Angeles County Fire Museum  The Los Angeles County Fire Museum is a public museum dedicated to the history of the Los Angeles County Fire Department in Los Angeles County, California. The museum has some 60 antique fire engines in its collection, including fire engines from the 1860s through just-retired apparatus.     

 

Columbia Memorial Space Center

The site of the museum is the former Boeing/Rockwell/North American plant where all of the Apollo Command/Service Modules were built and the Space Shuttle was conceived. In 1999, when the Downey Plant closed, the City of Downey began a redevelopment effort, including an educational component. In early 2007, a builder — Tower General Contractors — was selected, and ground was broken on April 12, 2007, on the 18,000 square foot project.
