    See a unique natural history museum for fossils excavated from the La Brea Tar Pits, which trapped animals here for the past 50,000 years (the period before the Ice Age), right in the middle of LA!

    Did you know? Since 1906, more than 1 million bones (from 231 species of vertebrates) have been recovered from the tar pits. The most commonly found large mammals are Dire wolves and saber-toothed cat Mehr erfahren

    Grab a friend and try the tar machine at the start of the museum tour, then wander to the other side for a real-time look at the scientists looking for itsy bitsy bones (and big ones too).

    The family move: Get here before LACMA opens (plenty of street parking), run around the grounds, tumble down the hill, bring bikes + a picnic, then hit the museum before naptime. Solid LA day.

    Hit up the La Brea Tarpits and don't be afraid to ask the working paleontologists anything you've ever wanted to know about sabertoothed tigers and mammoths. Foodtrucks on Wilshire are great for lunch Mehr erfahren

    There are areas in Hancock Park, location of the La Brea Tar Pits/Page Museum, that still have tar actively seeping though the ground. Be careful not to touch it! Sticky & messy! Check link for more! Mehr erfahren

    Park in the lot on Wilshire across from the pits. It's only $7 and doesn't get filled up as fast as the Tar Pits dedicated lot. Then grab some lunch at the nicest Marie Callendar's in the city.

    Be sure to check out the musician that performs in front of the tar pit museum. He plays guitar, banjo, harmonica and a few other instruments. Nice old guy with great skills.

    A unique site along the Miracle Mile where, to this day, sulfur still bubbles from the tar pits situated outside the museum. Those with weak stomachs should don masks to combat the odor!

    Half price tickets at :35 to closing which is more than enough time to see everything and still a bit too expensive considering the size of the museum.

    I thought this would be cool, but the place doesn't look or feel well cared for. The building is outdated. There are old dirty, dusty exhibits. Missing information and too many unsupervised kids!

    I assure you, the lighting at this location (especially around 3-4pm) is to die for. If you don't pull out your phone for a selfie, something's amiss.

    Visited the Tar Pits and LACMA many times! For about a year the mooring for the Mastadon sculpture was broken so the elephant statue would drift in the tar tip pool outside the museum.

    Don't skip this part of the tar pits park, it is worth the $12 to see what has been and is being excavated.

    Yes, your kids will find the few random patches of fresh tar and try to eat them. Wash quickly before they get it in their hair.
