  • 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 »

  • The museum is big, there are a lot of things to visit. You can travel the world by going around the corner, that's amazing. You can see scientists working on fossils, very interesting. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they will approach you even if you don't ask for their help. Very beautiful location.
  • It was a lot different from the last time I went as a boy. The museum had great displays, interactive activities and lessons. So it was amazing. There is so much to see. Museum cafe was pricey of course but we went anyway and it was good too. Definitely liked and remember the display with the species of animals, the rocks and minerals, and fossils.
