Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County Review
This 1913-built beaux arts museum has the usual dioramas of animals in their natural habitats, but it keeps kids interested with a interactive displays. The Discovery Center lets them touch real animal pelts, and the Insect Zoo allows them to get up close and personal with the white-eyed assassin bug and other creepy crawlers. Dinosaur Hall features more than 300 fossils, including the adult, juvenile, and baby skeletons of the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex. Also look for pre-Columbian artifacts and a display of crafts from the South Pacific. The 3.5-acre Nature Gardens, which debuted in 2013, features native plant and insect species and an expansive edible garden.
