  • The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles will appeal to those interested in archaeology and zoology and do not frighten effigies and skeletons. Be sure to go to the hall with stones and minerals on the ground floor. And I also highly recommend a free rose garden next to the museum.

  • I won't say it's bad but compared to the Museums in DC I was pretty disappointed. Guess all places can't be Smithsonian  more »

  • One of the cities treasures! Worth every cent, excellent exhibits, interactive and easy to navigate. For an additional $6 you can see the Oceans 3D (totally worth it) and Antarctic Dinosaurs (interesting but somewhat lacking). There's a small cafeteria with abundant indoor/outdoor seating. To be honest I could write a book on this place and still wouldn't do it justice. I suggest wear comfortable shoes, take your time and enjoy!
  • One of my all time favorite places in the world. I've been a member for the last few years but a fan since I've been 5. My son is the second generation museum enthusiast and just like dad amazed. The exhibits are great with much information to ingest The live shows are one a kind and so is the staff. It's a very intimate museum that makes you feel engaged at every stop. I seem to always find something new to learn and see, even though I've been here over a 100 times. I love you Natural History Museum of Los Angeles
