Three institutions make up the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History Foundation: the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, and the William S. Hart Museum.
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County boasts an extensive historical collection with over 35 million items, some of which date back as far as 4.5 billion years. The museum hosts a variety of immersive exhibitions, including one of the world’s most extensive dinosaur exhibit, the Dinosaur Hall, where you can get up close to a triceratops and observe the development of a T. Rex.
The La Brea Tar Pits and Museum are a playground of time. From their sticky, still-bubbling depths rises the past, which scientists display for the present and preserve for the future. The pits represent the only active urban paleontological excavation site in the US. Over the last century, scholars have excavated more than one million bones, building a catalog of roughly 650 species that stretches back more than 40,000 years. These animals paint a picture of what Los Angeles and the rest of the US looked like then: saber-toothed cats, mammoths, dire wolves, and mastodons surviving off each other and a dense thicket of vegetation.
William S. Hart Museum is the former residence of silent film star and director, William S. Hart. Located about an hour outside of Los Angeles, visitors can enjoy the Western art, Native American artifacts, and early Hollywood memorabilia that decorate the former 22-room mansion, now museum. The surrounding park, which hosts silent movie screenings and other events, also includes a picnic area where visitors can gaze upon the ranch’s herd of bison.
