Dinosaur Breath, Is That What I Smell at the La Brea Tar Pits?
The La Brea Tar Pits is still there after all these hundreds of thousands of years. Right in Museum Row on the Miracle Mile of Los Angeles it is a perfect stop on a tour of Hollywood to let everyone stretch their legs and allow the kids to run around, jump and roll down the hillside next to the George Page Museum. For archeology and paleontology the museum is wonderful — lots of hands on exhibits for the kids not to mention bones, goop and videos. You can even visit an operational pit and see where all the bones are coming from. If the smell of sulphur and petroleum byproducts and the sight of giant extinct animals bothers you there is always the Los Angeles County Museum of Art next door and the Peterson Automotive Museum across the street.
