The La Brea Tar Pits Museum is Experiencing A Takeover Of Epic Proportions!

For the first time at La Brea Tar Pits & Museum, you can explore how the Ice Age giants and their relatives evolved, adapted, and survived in a changing world at the new exhibit that just opened.

If you have been to La Tar Pits Museum, you should know that La Brea Tar Pits & Museum is home to over 1 million ice age fossils from 650 different species. Many mammoths, mastodons, and other Ice Age mammals became trapped in the asphalt at the Tar Pits, and for decades, the world-famous museum at La Brea Tar Pits has been excavating and displaying incredible Ice Age fossils, including those from Columbian mammoths and American mastodons, and now you can experience their world come to life.

At the new exhibit, "Mammoths and Mastodons", you can get up close to La Brea’s real fossils as well as new life-sized replicas that show what these animals looked like in life.

Kids are encouraged to touch pretty much everything in the new exhibit like a Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots-style game where opponents face off against each other in a mammoth battle. You and your kids will be amazed by the science behind excavating and analyzing these fascinating creatures.

This exhibit is free with your admission. The admission for adults is only $13 and for kids 3 to 12 is $5. All kids under 3 are free. For more information about this exhibit, visit The La Brea Tar Pit & Musuem's official website.
