La Brea Tar Pits and Museum

The La Brea Tar Pits is the world’s only consistently-active, urban Ice Age excavation site. Visitors can watch excavators unearth remains right outside the park then watch fossils be prepared, researched, and put on display.

See the live stage show, Ice Age Encounters, a dynamic show featuring a life-size adult saber-toothed cat puppet, live performance, and film projections.

🐥 Cheap! Cheap! Alert: L.A. County residents receive free museum admission 3-5 p.m. on weekdays. CA EBT cardholders with ID. Free tickets are available onsite only.
