Whether studying gargantuan dinosaurs that once ruled the Earth or ancient plants that thrived during the Ice Age, scientists at the Natural History Museum and La Brea Tar Pits are helping us understand our changing planet. Walk with us behind the scenes into labs and collections rooms to see how these investigators are building knowledge about our climate, from ancient times to today.
