Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County – Virtual Tour

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is one of the largest natural history museums in the United States. Its collections include nearly 35 million specimens and artifacts and cover 4.5 billion years of history.

The museum’s mission is:

“to inspire wonder, discovery, and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds.”

The museum opened in 1913 as The Museum of History, Science, and Art. The museum was later divided in 1961 into The Los Angeles County Museum of History and Science and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

The Museum eventually evolved into today’s The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County with three floors of permanent exhibits.

The museum has one of the largest collections of marine mammal remains in the world, with almost 30 million specimens in marine zoology.

“The dinosaurs disappeared because they could not adapt to their changing environment.
We shall disappear if we cannot adapt to an environment that now contains spaceships,
computers — and thermonuclear weapons.”

– Arthur C. Clarke
