AAA Editor Notes
Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits, 5801 Wilshire Blvd., is part of the Natural History Family of Museums and exhibits fossils of ice-age animals such as mammoths, dire wolves and saber-toothed cats. These sticky asphalt beds trapped and preserved prehistoric plant and animal life. Through the windows of the indoor lab, visitors can watch fossils being cleaned, identified and catalogued. Highlights of the 15-minute Ice Age Encounter include a live performance, a film and a life-size saber-toothed cat puppet. During the guided Excavator Tour guests visit the Fossil Lab and then head outside to the observation pit, the Pit 91 viewing station, an active excavation site and the Pleistocene Garden.
