One of the attractions at La Brea Tar Pits is the Observation Pit which gives visitors an idea of what scientists see before specimens are removed and cleaned up.  The Observation Pit reopened in 2014 after being closed for 20 years.

Mammoth Skeleton at La Brea Tar Pits

We really enjoyed our recent visit to the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum.  This pic shows the Columbian mammoth skeleton excavated from Pit 9 in 1914 that is displayed in the George C. Page Museum.  While there, one can also walk next door and visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
