What To Expect
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
Spend an enjoyable and educational afternoon exploring the National History Museum of Los Angeles County with a general admission ticket, which offers you access to a wealth of exhibits. First, discover more than 300 fossils, marvel at 20 complete skeletons, and virtually excavate specimens at a series of multimedia stations in the Dinosaur Hall. Here, you can also view the world’s only Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, get a behind-the-scenes look at paleontologists in the Dino Lab, and see dinosaurs come alive at the Dinosaur Encounters show. Then, journey through an epic evolutionary story that spans 65 million years and includes 240 specimens — such as mastodon and whale skeletons — as well as animal dioramas from North America and Africa. Continue on to the Gem and Mineral Hall, which features more than 2,000 individual specimens and a vault containing diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and gold. Find out how LA went from a tiny pueblo to a sprawling metropolis in the Becoming Los Angeles exhibit, and take a stroll past native plant species in the Nature Gardens, where kids and adults can take a closer look at how things grow in the Get Dirty Zone. Before leaving, don’t forget to scope out L.A. creatures scurrying about the Nature Lab, and try your hand at interactive touch-screens that let you explore stories about Los Angeles’ plants and animals.

I enjoyed this portion of my visit more so than the Science Center side. The exhibits were well done and the variety of subjects was certainly welcome. It also doesn't hurt that it all resides in some nice architecture.

I've been visiting this wonderful museum since I was a child, too long ago. It still holds many delights. Dinosaurs, halls of mammals, urban wildlife displays, gems and a beautiful garden. The perfect spot to lose yourself, no matter what your age. I was lucky enough to have a bright blue dragonfly share my space as I contemplated a shady garden spot. I'm old enough to remember the famous mummy (it's now in storage) and the staff always smiles, because so many native Angelinos keep returning. Lots of construction going on, with stunning new expansion in the works, but the original entrance still welcomed visitors of many generations.

The museum was closed that day for unknown reasons. I can't get my money back and couldn't visit the museum.
