Mammoths and Mastodons at La Brea Tar Pits

Mammoths and Mastodons at the La Brea Tar Pits

Coming Late December

Something Huge is coming to the Tar Pits. 

For decades, the world-famous museum at La Brea Tar Pits has been excavating and displaying incredible Ice Age fossils, including those from Columbian mammoths and American mastodons. Coming late December, the Museum will experience a takeover of MAMMOTH proportions with more of these magnificent beasts and others from the Ice Age. Get up close to life-sized models and take part in hands-on interactives that will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the science involved in excavating and analyzing these fascinating creatures.

Mammoths and mastodons will be taking over the La Brea Tar Pits Museum, and believe us -- it's a BIG deal.
