First Fridays

Have an exciting night at NHM. Wander through our halls after hours, sip craft cocktails with dinosaurs, engage in themed discussions, dance to live music and DJs in our mammal halls, and eat from scrumptious L.A. food trucks. 

2020 Season: The Future is Now

Faster than a Wi-Fi download, more powerful than an electromagnetic field, able to leap centuries in a single algorithm, the tech future is coming fast with the promise of delivering a livable future in spite of the forces arrayed against it.
