Natural History Museum

NHM is LA’s oldest museum building. The Dinosaur Hall features more than 300 fossils and 20 skeletons on display. It’s the only place in the world where you can see a baby, juvenile, and sub-adult T.rex at the same time. Don’t miss out on Dinosaur Encounters, a live performance with life-size dinosaur puppets from Thursdays – Sundays (additional fee).

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.

Guided tours, nature walks, camps, and special family-friendly festivals and fairs are offered throughout the year.

KG Tip: Don’t miss their annual Spider Pavilion in the fall (through November 27, 2022) and Butterfly Pavilion in the spring.

Free Day: Admission is free for LA County residents on weekdays after 3 p.m.
