"Watch an excavation at pit 91" La Brea Tar Pits and Museum Tip by cosmogypsy

  excavation site (Pit 91)

The La Brea Tar Pits are really worth the trip. Right away, you will see the tar or asphalt. I was told it isn't tar but asphalt. There is a part surrounding the museum and pits that is very nice.

Walking through the park, you arrive at pit 91 where Wednesday through Sunday 10am-4pm you can watch them excavate bones from animals such as the Saber-toothed tiger.

I found it exciting and I am sure young children would as well. Inside the Page Museum you can see the bones assembled and learn more about being a Paleontologist. You can also watch paleontologist at work assembling the bones that have been found.
