Take A Walk Through Prehistoric Los Angeles
"La Brea" is Spanish for tar pits—but luckily the tar pits are fenced off and no longer pose a danger. The pits have served as a fantastic paleontological site, one of the biggest and ongoing excavation projects in history. The museum itself houses some great specimens and the mechanical wooly mammoth is adorable. Adults and children alike enjoy this LA staple.
