Backpack to Santa Monica
Other than that, there's the Museum of Flying - found at the airport - which is planned to be reopened in December. Apparently, it's managed to acquire two planes - replicas of a Wright Flyer and a Lockhead Vega - from the movie Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. They will be on permanent display so if you don't go on your first trip to Santa Monica, you can see them again when you next visit.
Another museum soon to open is the Santa Monica Historical Society museum which will be the first in the town to exhibit the area's art, culture and history. Displays will include a virtual rollercoaster - modelled on the pier's original Whirlwind Dipper - and a touch screen map of the region.
