I suspect that a lot of people walk or drive by the La Brea Tar Pits - maybe take a look over the fence - and think they've seen it all. Slow down! This is more than a place where some animals got stuck in the asphalt. It's a geological time capsule unlocking some of the mysteries of the past. The Page Museum is the repository and education center that houses thousands of fossils, a number of outstanding exhibits, and explanations of the area's history. Adults and kids of all ages will love it, especially the animatronic re-creations of extinct and exotic creatures. Guided tours are available and the friendly staff roams around answering questions. A continuously running short film provides a well done summary of the history of La Brea Ranch and fossil excavations. On site parking is very convenient and affordable. If you're in the area, this is a worthwhile attraction, especially if combined with a visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
