Before going to the museum, it is important to know that it's one of the oldest cultural institutions in Los Angeles. The museum dates back to 1913, however, it reopened after some renovation in 2009.
The museum has a huge range of exhibits such as mammals, dinosaurs, the gem and mineral hall, an exhibit exploring the transformation occurring around Los Angeles, and it has gardens and a lab on site.

In the beginning, the discovery of this museum was mainly for educational purposes years ago. It has stayed in my mind as one of the best museums that I could have attended.
The Natural History Museum has so many exhibitions that if you want to get through each of them, you must go early to enjoy the full experience. The dinosaurs are one of my favorite species, it is intriguing how their anatomy is and how much information the museum discovered. However, the different interactions that visitors can have are amazing, you can become an archeologist or even get to see scientists prepare fossils for future exhibitions. There is always something in there that awakens your curiosity.
The museum also has a souvenir store where you can find many items to remember your visit or to purchase gifts and games for your family.
