Exposition Park - Museum of Natural History1

The dinosaur rules this museum the way they ruled the Earth for 185,000,000 years. The recently opened exhibition is considered one of the world’s best. Every bone was meticulously pieced together from disparate excavation sites to re-create a real size skeletal facsimile of four species of dinosaurs. Fossil displays leave clues as to what behaviors these massive creatures implemented to survive as long as they did. The work put into designing and curating the new Dino Hall is truly impressive.

The Mammal Hall was just renovated and features some clever interactive components that kids old and young will adore. Insects (including a separate building known as the Spider Pavilion), birds, Native American artifacts, and a room highlighting California history round out what should be a fascinating three hour adventure at the museum.
