Field Trips

Witness discoveries made daily at La Brea Tar Pits, the largest active urban Ice Age fossil site in the world!

We're excited to begin welcoming school groups back to La Brea Tar Pits & Museum! Explore our exhibit halls, get up-close-and-personal with specimens and artifacts, and experience our museums once again with your students on field trips! We are now accepting field trip booking requests for both museum sites from August 23 - December 17, 2021. Self-guided field trips to La Brea Tar Pits are free for California Pre-K - 12 public or private school groups. 

Please note: Due to current COVID-19 protocols and limited capacity, all onsite field trips are self-guided and add-ons (such as Titans of the Ice Age 2D) are currently unavailable to school groups. To submit your field trip request, you must review all Field Trip Policies with your group prior to visitation (including compliance with COVID-19 safety protocols, such as mask wearing indoors for all visitors ages 3+ regardless of vaccination status) and provide a signed copy of your school's LA County Department of Public Health Reopening Appendix (or equivalent safety plan for schools outside of Los Angeles County).
