A group of Spanish explorers made the first written record of the tar pits in 1769. The oldest known material from the tar pit dates back over 38,000 years.
Head to the George C. Page Museum to check out numerous prehistoric animals found in the Le Brea Tar Pits, an ancient graveyard.
CA (See) - Classic LA museum complete with an animatronic wooly mammoth! Definitely check out the current excavations going on in Pit 91!
It's called sulfur. Go ahead and think otherwise. #DontBlowIt
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.
Check out the guy playing the banjo at lunch time. He's all the lunch time entertainment you'll need.
Try to pull the plunger out of the ooze, next to the mammoth skeleton.
Roll down the hills like a kid again.
free and odd
Good place to go hang out.
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.
Skip the movies they cover the same material written on the back of the map.
Super fun and friendly staff! Don't forget to check out the movie that plays by the giant mammoth.
Where dinosaurs go to accidentally die...
Not a bad place to eat lunch. Fun to sit on the hill and listen to the tours
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).
Hug the sloth statue outside.
Informative and worth a visit is better to get to early and avoid crowds because it is fairly small.
First Tuesday of every month, free admission- that's it, no more excuses!
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.
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.
Tap on the Fishbowl glass; the paleo crew loves the company!
There is a lot of tar.

Don't tap on the glass of the Fishbowl!
This was my favorite place to go as a child.
Picnic-basket is a must!
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.
No, they do not have dinosaurs, 'mkaay?
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!
Don't forget to walk around in the park. Lots of pits to see.
Dated and small, not worth the entry fee except maybe for kids. Skip it and just check out the tar pits for free.
Check out the mural inside of animals in the tar pits and the surrounding forest/ mtns of what is today a concrete jungle.
Perfect for kids.
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!
Take the tour of the pits outside, very interesting stuff!
Make sure you have enough time to watch the educational video that they have there in the theater.
Great museum. Check out the animatronic saber tooth cat fighting the short faced bear.
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!
