Overview

Explore the museum through the eyes of an ethologist with this self-guided nature journal. Learn how ethologists study animals and animal behaviors to learn about life on earth and our place in it. Observe some of our smallest live animals in Bugtopia, explore the Age of Mammals Hall to travel through time and make connections between humans and other primates. Visit some of our furry locals in the Nature Lab and  discover the variety of animals that call Los Angeles home. Lastly, step into the shoes of a real life ethologist, Dr. Jane Goodall, to learn about her inspiring journey observing chimpanzees in the Gombe Preserve in Tanzania.
