George C. Page Museum
This is the home of the legendary La Brea Tar Pits, where thousands of Ice Age mammals and birds got stuck and died in the sticky tar. Hundreds of thousands of pounds of fossilized bones have been recovered thus far, and a large number of these can be seen at the museum.
There are also a number of exhibits on this "Death Trap of the Ages", suggesting how the animals may have gotten trapped in the tar, how their bones were preserved, and how paleontologists worked with these bones to prepare them for exhibit. A gift shop and restaurant are available at this site.
