George C. Page Museum and La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, CA


Transport your family back in time at the Page Museum, which features a large and fascinating collection of plant and animal fossils. Nearby you'll find over 100 tar pits containing fossils that date back to the Ice Age. These sticky pools are formed by oil seeping through the crust of the earth, as it has done in this region for thousands of years. Help your children imagine mammoths and mastadons trudging through the muck, and make prehistoric times come alive for your family.
