Description

Head to the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum and join visitors who come to witness Ice Age fossils being excavated right in the middle of L.A. Check out the tar bubbling in the Lake Pit, see prehistoric plants in the Pleistocene Garden, and explore active dig sites where excavators uncover something new every day.

Inside the Museum, scope out fossils from prehistoric creatures like mammoths, saber-toothed cats, dire wolves, ground sloths, and more. As you roam between exhibits, imagine Los Angeles during the Ice Age and get the chance to watch paleontologists working in the Fossil Lab on their most recent finds.

Find out how massive beasts might have ended up in the sticky tar and be sure to reserve a spot on the Excavator Tour, which offers a guided look at the history of the La Brea Tar Pits, the Fossil Lab, the Observation Pit, and Project 23, where you can see excavators unearthing new fossils that help unlock the mysteries of prehistoric Los Angeles.

It was ok, the cost per ticket and parking I really expected more. Part of it was under construction so it sorta seemed like they should have charged half.
