Dinosaur exhibit is worth the visit - we’ll curated and informative. Exhibit on LA was informative, as was the mammals hall. Otherwise, very ‘old school’ - exhibits could definitely use...

This place was amazing!! Smaller than expected but packed with so many amazing things! Our 8 year old daughter and I, along with my husband, all enjoyed the day. Getting to see the dinosaurs was the best part. We also did the butterfly exhibit, which was amazing. You pay $8 for the butterflies and get a 30 min window for the instruction, time inside, and then making sure that no butterflies are on you as you exit. The gift shop in the butterfly exhibit was expensive. I recommend buying souvenirs inside the main museum because they are cheaper. This was seriously one of the coolest things I’ve seen. As long as you enjoy history and such, you will love it.
Truly delighted by the experience, the museum was very complete and the wings/expo areas very well cared and with much much of information about the matter at hand. The prehistoric wing is a museum-classic and a must to visit, it includes lots of information and actual-size skeleton build ups of dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals... all expositions were complemented with much side educational information. The venue has ample parking space however I'd recommend to go there early as the lot may get full very fast. In case you visit the place with a senior person, you can ask for a complimentary wheelchair and everyone will assist you. Will visit the place again whenever I'm back in the area.
All of a sudden I love dinosaurs!?! I didn't think this would be a favorite for me, but the museum is curated so well, and the architecture is so good, that it's my new favorite. The exhibits of animals are amazing. I'm not usually a fan of taxidermy, it usually feels kind of creepy, but they are done so well at this museum. They're life-like, with such amazing detail, and the way they're set in the environment makes it feel as though you're looking at them in their natural environment. There was also a multimedia exhibit on Los Angeles under water that was really cool, with video and maps of where goals have been found. An exhibit of the history of Los Angeles was really well done as well and was engaging. Lots of interactive stuff in the Lab area for kids, and the ground are beautiful too. I probably spent about 4 hours here, and while it was enough time to see everything, I wish I had more time there.
This was my 1st time to the museum. The exhibits are awesome and the staff is amazing. We paid extra for the Dino experience ( I only recommend this if you have young children), and the butterfly pavilion.. the butterfly pavilion was amazing and the time inside was perfect. My only disappointment was lunch. I thought $80.00 for 4 was a bit high for the quality of food.my wrap was rather bland lacking much substance. My nieces chicken sandwich was dry and the fries were cold. The BBQ chicken pizza was surprisingly delicious as was the salad. Overall a great day.
I'm 39 years old and barely came to this popular museum. Wow! What a collection of detailed history all in one place. So much information and cool sculptures to absorb. They had a cute little area for children. My toddler enjoyed being in that area. Restrooms and elevators available. Edible Garden is located outside where you exit through the dinosaur hall.
