Our Butterfly Pavilion and Nature Gardens are now open, and tickets are sold out for the season. The inside of the museum remains closed. Advanced timed-tickets are required for members and non-members. See NHMLAC's response to coronavirus (COVID-19).

In L.A.

A New Way to See L.A.

At our museums, we believe that what lives in our neighborhoods is as important as what is on display in our halls. 

By celebrating and illuminating L.A.’s diverse nature and culture—at our museums and out in our neighborhoods—we serve as a hub for telling stories with global relevance and local impact.

Make A Date With L.A.

Join us at events located at our museums, and out in the city!
