  • We were just looking for anything to do while in LA and chose the museum. It is very large and has plenty of displays and things to read and learn from. The cafe was a nice plus with outside seating.

  • All of a sudden I love dinosaurs!?! I didn't think this would be a favorite for me, but the museum is curated so well, and the architecture is so good, that it's my new favorite. The exhibits of animals are amazing. I'm not usually a fan of taxidermy, it usually feels kind of creepy, but they are done so well at this museum. They're life-like, with such amazing detail, and the way they're set in the environment makes it feel as though you're looking at them in their natural environment. There was also a multimedia exhibit on Los Angeles under water that was really cool, with video and maps of where goals have been found. An exhibit of the history of Los Angeles was really well done as well and was engaging. Lots of interactive stuff in the Lab area for kids, and the ground are beautiful too. I probably spent about 4 hours here, and while it was enough time to see everything, I wish I had more time there.
  • Wow! What an amazing place to visit!!! People of ALL ages can have a great time here and easily spend 2+ hours. Easy parking costs $15 separate from admission/ticket prices. Highly recommend all exhibits are fantastic and educational. Absolutely stunning, beautiful and clean facility. The gardens were a extra bonus. The cafe food was convenient. Highly recommend to any and everyone.
