In the guided tour of Hancock Park and the La Brea Tar Pits, visitors learn about our fascinating tar pit formation, and how animals and plants became entrapped in the asphalt! Tour highlights may include: Pit 91 where you can view fossils still embedded in an excavation pit; our current excavation, Project 23, where excavators work seven days a week; and our authentic Pleistocene or Ice Age garden. Tours last 30 minutes to one hour.

The guided tour of the Page Museum highlights our extensive and expanding collection of over 3.5 million Ice Age fossils. See our Fishbowl Lab, where paleontologists process recent finds from our ongoing excavation. Tours last 30 minutes to one hour.
