We had an hour before our next appointment and spent the time on the grounds. We enjoyed strolling and looking at the exhibits. I would recommend the grounds if you are in need of of a peaceful diversion.
A visit to the La Brea Tar Pits is well worth it! It is a great venue for families and the young and old, alike. We experienced the 3-D Ice Age movie and the archaeological tour. Both are highly recommended as a great overview/understanding of...More
It was an interesting tour with a knowledgeable and personable tour guide. I heard about it early in life, and now I got to see it. It has a nice, comfortable walking tour, and it takes your mind back to the Ice Age. The museum...More
As a Los Angeles native, I am embarrassed that it took me decades to finally visit this place. The museum is excellent, and the guided tours with museum educators are truly worthwhile. You’ll learn a great deal, and you’ll enjoy strolling through the park outside...More
I normally don't like museums but this one is special. The tar (asphalt) pits and the museum are super interesting and everything is pretty nicely organized. The staff members were really helpful and friendly, and the free tours were informative and still casual enough for...More
At first we were only going to look around outside at the park, the excavation dig and the one remaining, occasionally bubbling tar pit. Fascinating. Went to the museum in the end and it was really good. Lots of things from previous digs, a lot...More

There is a large parking lot behind the museum. It is not free to park in it though. I think it was $12. You can also park on the streets around it but it is tight around there and there are meters. There is no time limit to park in the parking lot, just until the museum closes. There are also another museums or two next to the pits so if you wanted to look into them you could leave your car in the lot and just walk to them as well.
