The Page Museum
at the La Brea Tar Pits
is a project of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
Although some of the most important discoveries from the La Brea Tar Pits are at the main Natural History Museum in Exposition Park, and in other natural history museums around the world, the Page Museum is dedicated to the preservation, interpretation and exhibition of the remaining artifacts retrieved from the La Brea Tar Pits
In addition to displaying the skeletons of animals preserved in the tar, a windowed "fish bowl" laboratory allows visitors to watch scientists at work cleaning and preserving new finds from the tar pits.
Excavation staff can be observed outside the museum in the ongoing excavations at the tar pits.
The Page Museum
is located in Hancock Park near the LA County Museum of Art
on Museum Row
in the Miracle Mile neighborhood of Los Angeles.
