We love going back to the Natural History Museum. The dioramas are a must see. The Large ones at the end of the halls make you feel like you are there among the animals. Check out the display of the steller sea lion. Who knew seals could get that big. Lots of cool exhibits to see. Lots of dinosaur bone... More

Disappointed there is an entrance fee as I live near Washington DC where the Smithsonian Natural History Museum is free. Otherwise, very nice. Gorgeous rose garden right out the door.

It is a museum for all ages. We brought our 3 yr. old and 19 month old initially to see the butterfly pavilion as they are now at the age that are crazy about bugs and insects. As we stepped into the museum, their eyes immediately filled with wonder at the huge whale skeleton that greeted us at the entrance... More

Great, educational museum which is made for people of all ages. Huge part devoted to dinosaurs but does include other animals. It took us about 4 hours to complete the museum however did take a lunch break which helped out.

We got combo tickets with the Page Museum to see the La Brea Tar Pits which was a good value. The dinosaur and mammal exhibits were excellent, but the rest of the museum was a bit dated. Still excellent value for the money, we're happy we went!

This is a musuem that should be visited if you are already at the California Science Center. This musuem is the largest on the west coast and their dinosaur collection is beyond belief. My favorites were the main one near the lobby and the three t-rex's in the dinosaur are an amazing display.
