For over a century people from our local community and around the world have studied and been inspired by the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

Dinosaurs are just some of the fossils that make up the museums’ paleontology collections of over 12 million specimens, the largest on the west coast. Celebrate this rich history of exploration and join us for programming celebrating dinosaurs, their prehistoric past, and the science that brings their world back to life. Meet world-renowned paleontologists from the museum's Dinosaur Institute and beyond, take home hands-on activities, celebrate the 10th anniversary of our famous Dinosaur Hall with the world’s only Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, and so much more!
