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! We are now accepting field trip booking requests for both museum sites. 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! Self-guided field trips to La Brea Tar Pits are free for California Pre-K - 12 public or private school groups. 

Please note: 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 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).
