LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — La Brea Tar Pits is billed as The World’s Urban Gateway to the Ice Age, and it sits in the heart of L.A. Visitors can watch excavations, see many fascinating things from ┬áthe massive collection acquired during digs, and learn about climate change that’s just part of living on Planet Earth.

Huge, extinct mammals such as mammoths, saber tooth cats and dire wolves once roamed the jungle known as Los Angeles as visitors can see when they visit the incredibly unique Tar Pits, park, a museum, observation pit, fossil lab, 3D Theater and a special installation that’s just passing through on its West Coast stop.

Called Second Home Pavilion, the attraction includes a Serpentine Pavilion by Selgascano featuring rainbow tunnels where art and science meet. Open June 28-November 24, 2019, it’s free and open to the public.

Hurry! While we’re in an interglacial period which began about 10,000 years ago, and we are most likely in an ice age now (Pleistocene Ice Age) which has been going on 2.5 million years or longer, the limited engagement, cool attraction in Hancock Park is around for less than five months!
