The La Brea Tar Pits is a really neat place to go for the entire family. I enjoy taking my daughter here so she can see all the skeletons in the tar pits and see actual skeletons being cleaned in the Page museum. It really brings home how real these creatures are especially after she has watched too much of the dinosaur cartoons like Barney on television.

Better known as the La Brea Tar Pits, this is a one of kind museum with a focus on prehistoric life centered in our very own Los Angeles. I must say that as a kid this was one of my most favorite museums, but as an adult I find it pretty small and quick. The exhibits don't change all that much, but that's because it's focal point will always be the tar pits. But there are some fun interactive models including places were you get to feel what it's like to try and lift yourself out of the tar. Again, it's great for kids and the admission is pretty low. A definite must!

I went to this Museum that has the La Brea Tar Pits when I was a kid and it's even more interesting as an adult (with my own kids). I had no idea that the tar pits are still excavated to find ancient mammal fossils. I had no idea that America had some animals (in LA, no less) that now you think of in Africa and the Middle East. There are models and skeletons of the animals found in LA 30 years ago when a man was preparing to build a house for his family. I, for one, am glad he decided against it and donated it for generations of kids to learn about what life was like before LA was so settled.

I had driven by this museum and the La Brea Tar Pits several times, but never realized the little black "pond" I saw was the actual tar pit until I visited the place. Up close, you can smell the tar, which takes you to another time. The musuem has an actual laboratory where you can watch them process the fossils, a dig site observation tower, an educational film that describes the history of the tar pits, a gift shop and a nice little arboretum where we took a nice calming break listening to the water go over the rocks. I only wish it were larger.
