The Flight Path Museum houses memorabilia, timelines and items related to the history of LAX along with air-crafts models and an old DC3 that you can tour.It is located is situated in the LAX Imperial Terminal, 6661 W. Imperial Highway, Los Angeles, on the south side of the airport , just west of Sepulveda Blvd, which used to be the terminal for charter airlines. It is called Flight Path because it is literally on the flight path (you can watch a lot of planes take off while listening to the Air Traffic Controller).
It is fun to visit the Flight Path museum at LAX. It is however a small museum that can be toured in less than an hour. If you have a toddler, it can be toured in less than half an hour. There is not much to do for kids. The attractions for kids are the DC3 and watching the airplanes taking off. The best thing it is free and the staff is very courteous and kind. So if you wondering what to do on a Friday or a Saturday (closed on Sunday), head to LAX and make a right at the end of freeway 105. If you see El-Segundo sign the you have passed the location.
