Visit the La Brea Tar Pits for FREE

Looking for a fun activity t do with your kids ? Low on cash and would like to do something that's F.R.E.E.? If you live in or around the Los Angeles area, why not take your little ones to the La Brea Tar Pits Museum! It's free on the first Tuesday of each month (tomorrow). The museum is located at the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits in the heart of Los Angeles. It's a world famous location displaying fossils from centuries ago. The museum is recognized as having the largest and most diverse assemblage of extinct Ice Age plants and animals in the world! Visitors can learn about LA as it was between 10,000 and 40,000 years ago during the last Ice Age. You and your kids can learn about a time in our history when animals such as the saber-toothed tiger and the whooly mammoth roamed the LA Basin. You can even watch bones being cleaned and repaired through the windows of the museum's laboratory! Outside the museum, your kids will be able to see life size replicas of the animals they learned about in the museum. Hancock Park, situated directly accross the street, features several extinct animal statues. Parking is only $7 so it's a great deal. You and your kids can get out on a sunny day and participate in an educational activity together!
