One of the great museums in Exposition Park near USC. The Natural History Museum has wonderful exhibits for everyone in the family. The African American and Science Museums are also worthh visiting.

The dinosaur exhibit is fantastic. Also, save some time to walk through the Rose Gardens next door.

The fairly new Dinosaur Hall is so great. The information is well organized so it is easy to see and connect the evolution of these amazing creatures. My family and I also love the T-Rex exhibit where we can see an archeologist at work. There are many other exhibit at this museum that are so fascinating. The interactive room is big and airy. Great place to get the kids touching all sorts of things. Go when the outdoor Butterfly or Spider exhibit is on.

I've taken my kids to this museum several times over the last decade and it never gets boring. I feel like a kid when I go and there's always something new to learn. The newest Dinosaur exhibit is really nice! We were all very impressed by the extensive collection of bones and specimens the museum has. My favorite exhibit that should not be missed is the Gem and Mineral hall. Beautiful colors dazzle the eyes here and you are certain to be amazed at some of nature's greatest formations.

Allow plenty of time to see this museum as it has a lot to see. Trying to cram everything into two hours will leave you feeling rushed.
