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!
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.
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.
Learn about natural history while helping to preserve the La Brea Tar Pits. Join UCLA students on 04/02/11 in our efforts to promote volunteerism in our communities, including at this ancient site!
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 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.
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 The building is outdated.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!
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!
Cassandra often visits the Dorothy Collins Brown Amphitheater to read the energy vibes of the area and @fightaic. Find out more by playing the
Don't skip this part of the tar pits park, it is worth the $12 to see what has been and is being excavated.
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.
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.
CA (See) - Classic LA museum complete with an animatronic wooly mammoth! Definitely check out the current excavations going on in Pit 91!
Head to the George C. Page Museum to check out numerous prehistoric animals found in the Le Brea Tar Pits, an ancient graveyard.
Street cleaning on 6th street just behind the Museum until 12:00 every Tuesday. Which means plenty of free parking at 12:05
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.
Wonderful exploration into the history and science of the tar pits. Artifacts collected from within the pits are here.
In or near Mid-Wilshire? Walk or bike to La Brea Tar Pits for 100 tons of fossilized bones - http://ht.ly/5AXan
Super fun and friendly staff! Don't forget to check out the movie that plays by the giant mammoth.
Informative and worth a visit is better to get to early and avoid crowds because it is fairly small.
Check out the mural inside of animals in the tar pits and the surrounding forest/ mtns of what is today a concrete jungle.
Dated and small, not worth the entry fee except maybe for kids. Skip it and just check out the tar pits for free.
This is not just a museum, it's an active research site. The atrium is pretty nice too.
Check out the guy playing the banjo at lunch time. He's all the lunch time entertainment you'll need.
Validate parking @ museum front desk. No free parking on street after 4 pm
Vending machines out front have bottles of soda for only a dollar! What a bargain!
Skip the movies they cover the same material written on the back of the map.
Make sure you have enough time to watch the educational video that they have there in the theater.
Don't forget to walk around in the park. Lots of pits to see.
Great museum. Check out the animatronic saber tooth cat fighting the short faced bear.
What happens in the La Brea tar pits stays in the La Brea Tar Pits....cool afternoon.
Not a bad place to eat lunch. Fun to sit on the hill and listen to the tours
Tourists... something else to do in LA beyond theme parks! So unique.
Small museum but some impressive fossils.
First Tuesday of every month, free admission- that's it, no more excuses!
This was my favorite place to go as a child.
Tap on the Fishbowl glass; the paleo crew loves the company!
Excelente museo, vale la pena visitarlo.
