We had no school on Friday, and D took the day off of work, so we took a day trip to L.A. The plan was to use our free IMAX tickets at the California Science Center, but the projector was having technical difficulties. Fortunately, I had also made reservations at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, which is within walkable distance so our drive to Los Angeles was not all for naught.
I would recommend buying the tickets online before you arrive. Adults were $12 and kids were $5 with no service fee. At the door it appeared that they were charging $10 for kids.
Right at the entrance to the museum you are greeted by impressive dinosaur fossils.
The geodes and precious gems were fascinating to look at. Can you imagine stumbling upon one of these beauties?
This fish totally grossed me out. I guess someone found it in the LA River??
I had way too much fun taking pictures of the animal displays. So nice that they stand still for pictures! 🙂
I think we need to watch Night at the Museum now!
There was a whole exhibit dedicated to the history of Los Angeles.
They had a staring contest. The polar bear won.
k is getting close to 5 feet; n is on his tiptoes!
As you can tell, there was a lot too see. I will do part 2 tomorrow…
