Here, you can also view the world’s only Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, get a behind-the-scenes look at paleontologists in the Dino Lab, and see dinosaurs come alive at the Dinosaur Encounters show. Then, journey through an epic evolutionary story that spans 65 million years and includes 240 specimens — such as mastodon and whale skeletons — as well as animal dioramas from North America and Africa.

Find out how LA went from a tiny pueblo to a sprawling metropolis in the Becoming Los Angeles exhibit, and take a stroll past native plant species in the Nature Gardens, where kids and adults can take a closer look at how things grow in the Get Dirty Zone.

Have your Vaccine records ready smh.
, Mar 2022
Bought tickets while visiting LA, when we arrived we were told we could not enter without a Vaccination card & Drivers license. Would not come back I’m sure it’s a beautiful place but this city is being run to the ground with these requirements. Can’t even grab something to eat because every restaurant requires you to carry your vaccination records.
