  • We were just looking for anything to do while in LA and chose the museum. It is very large and has plenty of displays and things to read and learn from. The cafe was a nice plus with outside seating.

  • Wow! What an amazing place to visit!!! People of ALL ages can have a great time here and easily spend 2+ hours. Easy parking costs $15 separate from admission/ticket prices. Highly recommend all exhibits are fantastic and educational. Absolutely stunning, beautiful and clean facility. The gardens were a extra bonus. The cafe food was convenient. Highly recommend to any and everyone.
  • Absolutely love this place. Probably one of my favorite stops in the area. The place is HUGE!! Just when you think you’ve hit the end of the road you turn the corner and there is a whole new wing you haven’t explored! Love it! Don’t miss this one! Parking is relatively easy, although you might have a bit of a walk. Tickets are affordable and the exhibits are amazing.
  • Great museum with the kiddos! We spend an afternoon here, I want to see and learn about. Came for the dinosaurs, stayed for the mammals/history of LA! Also, make no mistake, the dinosaurs did not disappoint! They also have a nice little cafe that’s very reasonable with pricing. Pizza, burgers, etc. Plus a little grab n go section where you can get salads or sandwiches and drinks and fresh fruit. Overall, great experience!
  • If you have a child that loves dinosaurs. 🦕 This is a great place to bring them. My 6 year old son loved seeing all the fossils. We tried to make it a little bit of a fun challenge for him and would quiz him on what dinosaur it was before he could see the sign stating it. Our personal little dinosaur expert talks to everyone about when asked about our trip to here. I'm sure he'd love to go back an see it all again tomorrow if he could.
  • So thankful this museum has Janet!! Excellent customer service!! Husband is in the military and it was hard to keep a date, but she helped me through the whole process with ease. Her kindness and willingness to go above and beyond has brought us so much happiness! I hope she gets a bonus or some kind of award, she deserves it. Thank you Janet God bless you🙏🏽❤
