Description

LA Weekly's Description

Located in Exposition Park, this museum features permanent exhibits like African mammals and birds, and special exhibits like the butterfly and spider pavilions. Not to be missed, however, is the newly refurbished Dinosaur Hall, which is now a bright, sunny, polished headquarters with tall windows and a modern feel, with a two-level layout. With its impressive collection of shiv-toothed skeletal remains, the dinosaur hall manages to be a delightful balance of the educational and the creepy.

Merchant's Description

Human beings are connected — to each other, to communities, to other species, and to the Earth. As humans increasingly influence natural systems, it is critical that we understand these relationships. This understanding, in the context of the history of the Earth and its inhabitants, guides our approach to investigation and interpretation. By integrating our global research and extensive collections with engaging learning experiences that reveal all aspects of our work, we provoke curiosity and deepen understanding of our natural and cultural worlds. This dynamic learning laboratory and forum for the exchange of ideas is a new model that sets the standard for museums of the future. We inspire the widest possible audience to enjoy, value and become stewards of the living Earth.
