Safety Measures & Guidelines

As part of our commitment to your healthy and safety during your visit, the museum is implementing a number of measures. All visitors are required to:

  • Stay home if you are not feeling well
  • In accordance with the L.A. City Municipal Code Ordinance all eligible patrons (currently 12+) are required to show proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test performed within 72 hours. Full vaccination is 14+ days after receiving a one-dose vaccine or 14+ days after receiving both doses of a two-dose vaccine. Visitors 18+ must also show a valid photo ID. Children 11 and under are currently exempt from this mandate.
  • Per Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, we are still requiring masks be worn at all times in all of our indoor spaces and outdoor Butterfly Pavilion. This applies to ALL guests over the ages two and above, regardless of vaccination status. We appreciate your help in protecting our community members who are not yet able to receive the vaccination.
  • Wash hands often

Please respect our staff

We look forward to your visit. Please note, the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County will not tolerate inappropriate behavior, including, but not limited to, yelling, violence, intimidation, threats, harassment, aggression, swearing, damage, abuse, or sexual harassment. Individuals who are aggressive toward staff or other visitors will be expelled from NHM and escorted off the property.
