The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County is highlighting ongoing and upcoming exhibitions at its venues. At the Natural History Museum is in the final weeks of its “Becoming Jane: The Evolution of Dr. Jane Goodall.” The exhibition, organized by National Geographic in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute, explores Goodall’s venerable career, surveying the conservationist and ethologist’s work from her early field research in Gombe, Tanzania, to her current community-centered work.
Visitors can also experience fluttering butterflies in the seasonal Butterfly Pavilion. This springtime exhibition features hundreds of butterflies, colorful native plants and plenty of natural light to help the public to see the creatures shimmer. With lots of flight space and a variety of resting spots, people can get one of the best views in Los Angeles of these amazing insects.
The Natural History Museum also has the all-new immersive dinosaur encounters show. Visitors can also catch a glimpse of the underwater realm of ancient L.A. in the exhibition L.A. Underwater: The Prehistoric Sea Beneath Us.
At the museum at La Brea Tar Pits, the public can come face-to-face with extinct Ice Age animals with a visit to the Mammoths and Mastodons installation and Ice Age Encounters show.
