Join us for our annual festival celebrating all things dinosaur!

For over a century, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County has inspired people from the local community and visitors from all over the world to study prehistoric fossils. Dinosaurs are just some of the fossils that make up the Museum’s paleontology collections of over 12 million specimens, the largest on the West Coast!

Dino Fest celebrates 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. See unique fossil collections that include Jurassic giant dinosaurs and the other creatures that roamed alongside them. You don’t want to miss this event that is millions of years in the making!
