What people are saying about Los Angeles

When I arrived I didnt think there was going to be that many exhibits. I was wrong, to my surprise there was several. I found many of the exhibits filled with many informational facts about various things. I definently enjoyed the exhibits with the gems and the history of L.A.. But that's just my opinion. I definitely would go again.

I’ve been to a couple national history museums and this one is by far the best I’ve been. It even serves beer. I’ve spent 4 hours wandering around.

La Brea Tar pits is an excellent place to visit in the city if Los Angeles go with you kids go with everybody is just ok

This is a beauty of a museum!!! The price is nice- the building exquisite and the displays are superior!
