If you want to spend a long nice educational day anywhere then this is the place to do it right – the Natural History Museum of L.A. They offer group coupons and student discounts so bring your IDs. The staff and the exhibits were all wonderful. And a good place to bring your kids too. There are tons of stuffs to look at, one is their animals, fossils, insects, meteorites, the gems, gold and all sorts.
Let me share a short info about Thomas the T.rex (shown photo #14): well, he captivates visitors of the Dino Hall. This 70% complete specimen is one of the ten most complete T.rex specimens on Earth. The hall opened in July 2011 and it has so far been popular with the successful story of Thomas the T.rex. It is the most stunning centerpiece at the Dino Hall featuring baby, juvenile and sub-adult growth series and is the only one series of its kind in the world. The new hall is designed to allow visitors to wander around and in some instances, underneath, the specimens. Because of their innovative platforms, many of the major mounts are not surrounded by thick glass — providing rare opportunities for up-close looks at the fossils.
