The Family of Museums
Read more about our Family
NHM has amassed one of the world's most extensive and valuable collections of natural and cultural history - more than 35 million objects, some as old as 4.5 billion years.
Located in the heart of metropolitan Los Angeles, the world famous Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits represents the only active urban paleontological excavation site in the world.
Silent film star William S. Hart purchased ranch property in Newhall, north of Los Angeles, in 1921. He built a 22-room mansion and filled it with Western art, Native American artifacts, and early Hollywood memorabilia.
Our best fossils and paleontology in action are inside!
We're a triple threat! The Natural History Family includes NHM, the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits, and the William S. Hart Museum, in Newhall, CA.
