We spent two days in the park and that was nowhere near enough time to enjoy everything. Lucky we planned a Sunday so we could see and hear the Spreckle organ concert which happens every Sunday at 2pm. Otherwise some points of interest are the Japanese Friendship Garden, the Old Globe Theatre and the Museum of Man. Plan on lunch reservations at The Prado.

Great activity to do on a warm spring day. Lots of stuff going on and a ton of museums to visit. We visited it with the family ranging from 6 to 68. We all had a great time. Actually we wished we had more time to visit the museums so I can't tell you about them.

Enjoyed the air & space museum. There is a lot to see so plan accordingly to have enough time to visit the areas you want to see. The train museum was not open the day I was there so check schedules for specific days/time of events. There is a cost for each of the museums that you attend. Places available for eating and enjoyed a nice lunch while there.
