down on biz and family vacation to first Vegas and then Anaheim.

Any museums or such worth visiting? I hear Chino is worth a visit.

Any other suggestions?

Chino is great, and I highly recommend it. I suppose you could try Edwards or March if they're along the way.

If in Vegas, I suggest,... The Atomic Testing Museum.
http://www.atomictestingmuseum.org/
Prices have gone up a bit to $12.00 a head,..But it's still worth it. It's not a day killer though, it can be done in a couple hours, so there is plenty of time to head back to the strip.

Chino is a must; there's usually something going on every weekend, so check their website.

As for Disneyland and the other area amusement parks, make sure you have sunscreen, brimmed hats and lots of water for everyone (I prefer a wide brimmed boony hat for all-around coverage myself, being a person of pallor). They still allow you to carry in your own water/Gatorade jugs (with carrying slings), so it might be a good idea to get one for everyone in your party, otherwise you're looking at paying usurious prices for bottled water or other drinks.

Chino's compulsory, and that's not negotiable. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Also, you're gonna love driving through the Anaheim and Long Beach area, especially if you're taking I-5, if indeed you are driving.

Be ready...
