Fossils & Skeletons

The Page Museum is a spectacular combination of a Natural History Museum and a real part of LA's geological history. The Page Museum itself is located at the La Brea Tar Pits, a Los Angeles jewel, these pits are deep pools of natural asphalt that have been seeping up from the ground for about 40,000 years. The bones of animals that became trapped in the pits were perfectly preserved, and you can see over a million fossils and bones at the Page Museum. The price of admission earns you a spot on the Excavator Tour, which is the only way to get into the recently reopened Observation Pit. Here, you can observe the pits and be completely blown away by something so ancient located smack in the middle of the city.
