El Museo Page tiene la misma ubicación que La Brea Tar Pits, así que después de ver los mamíferos de la Edad de Hielo de los pozos, se puede caminar en el interior del museo Page y ver restos fósiles. Hay exhibiciones masivas de mamuts, tigres dientes de sable y una increíble colección de lobos gigantes. También hay exhibiciones de insectos, plantas y aves. La exhibición de los restos óseos de la ‘Mujer La Brea’ es especialmente interesante, ya que se dice que vivió hace unos 9000 años. Esta es una experiencia extraordinaria para toda la familia.
This lavish pantheon of fame and glamor captured in wax is one of Hollywood’s crown jewels. Hailing from London, Madame Tussauds brings to Hollywood its world-class interactive viewing entertainment, great for all ages. Located on Hollywood Boulevard, just next to Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the museum is hard to miss due to its prepossessing open-air facade with a few wax figures casually spilling out on the sidewalk. Come in and stroll the vast grounds populated with the rich and famous (as well as the infamous) and the beautiful and formidable. Photography and handling are a must. Whether it is shaking hands with President Obama or wrapping your arm around Mae West that is more your thing, you will be exhilarated by the lifelike, vivid portrayals and infinite photo ops.
El Museo de Tecnología Jurasica es uno de los museos más interesantes de Los Ángeles. Aunque las exposiciones cuentan con artefactos y reliquias de la era Jurásica Inferior, parecen permanecer fieles a la temática del museo. La aventura principal para el visitante es determinar si todo este museo es una farsa o no. Independientemente de la conclusión final, sin duda vale la pena visitar el museo, tanto por el precio de la entrada, así como por el tiempo para explorarlo.
Alguna vez, Rancho La Brea o La Brea Tar Pits (pozos de alquitrán) era sólo una concesión de tierra mexicana. Ahora es un parque, el depósito más rico de fósiles de la Era de Hielo del mundo. Hace más de 40000 años, mamuts, tigres dientes de sable y lobos gigantes vagaban libremente la cuenca de Los Ángeles y quedaron atrapados en el asfalto natural de los pozos de alquitrán. Durante los meses de verano, los visitantes pueden observar la excavación en curso en el pozo 91. El Museo Page es imperdible. Consultar el sitio web para más detalles.

Located in the Hollywood Hills, this museum features excellent sculptures by local as well as international artists in a green, luscious plantation.

You can book a visit or sign up for an upcoming event to view this scenic garden and enjoy a tour by Dr. Robby himself.
The Triforium is a massive sculpture located on the City Hall campus that was created by Joseph Young. As with much public art, the 60-ton sculpture has had its fair share of detractors as well as proponents, but as the old adage states, 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder'. The architect wished for the sculpture to beam lights into space as well as create a polyphonic/optical display through motion sensors, however budgetary restrictions prevented their implementation. Nonetheless, the sculpture has remained a part of public art in L.A. since 1975, and will continue to be until it obtains its original bells and whistles it was originally meant to have.
