“A gateway back to the Ice Age, right in the heart of L.A.”
Visitors can learn about Los Angeles as it was between 10,000 and 40,000 years ago, during the last Ice Age, when animals such as saber-toothed cats and mammoths roamed the Los Angeles Basin. Through windows at the Page Museum Laboratory, visitors can watch bones being cleaned and repaired. Outside the Museum, in Hancock Park, life-size replicas of several extinct mammals are featured. The Page Museum is part of a Family of Museums that includes the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County downtown in Exposition Park and the William S. Hart Museum in Newhall, CA.
Outstanding place. My kids loved it and it was
Free Days - 2019

Really cool place. It’s $15 to park and $15 to get into the museum but the first Tuesday is free admission so I got in for free. A lot to see and check out. Take a look at the tar pull exhibit to see how hard it would be for one of these ancient beasts to actually get out of the muck once they were in. It’s pretty heavy. There’s also several open dog sites, so you can observe what is being found even today.
Watch where you step, tar is seeping from the grass everywhere. It was a lot of fun.
The museum is really cool, especially the wall of skulls. You can also just walk around the tar pits outside the museum for free. You can even see a pit that archaeologists are digging up!
