Natural History Museum

Roam around 20 skeletons of dinosaurs and sea creatures and examine over 300 fossils in the Dinosaur Hall. It’s the only place in the world where you can see a baby, juvenile, and sub-adult T.rex at the same time. Plus, feel a real Triceratops fossil that is over 65 million years old.

Other ongoing exhibitions include Age of Mammals, Nature Gardens, Hall of Birds, African and North American Diorama Halls, Gem and Mineral Hall, Nature Lab, Dino Lab, and Visible Vault.

Spiky, Hairy, Shiny: Insects of L.A., presents a selection of large-format photographs of local insects displayed next to life-size specimens. This special exhibition is on display until April 1, 2022.

Discovery from the Deep: Come face-to-face with a deep-sea fish and see it’s sharp teeth, built-in rod and lure, and touch a model replicating the fish’s spiky exterior.

The Spider Pavilion is now open for the season through December 5, 2021. Stroll through the open air pavilion to see hundreds of orb weavers and their amazing webs. Then, enter the spider den to see tarantulas and other species.
