Homeschool Days

Visit the Tar Pits on a day just for you!

La Brea Tar Pits is proud to offer two days each school year when homeschoolers can come free of charge. Each Homeschool Day has an assigned theme with free drop-in activities designed to help you and your students get the most out of our exhibits.
