Inside this museum is three separate mammal halls. That doesn't count the temporary Extreme Mammals temporary exhibit. You can see the Hall of African Mammals, North American Mammal Hall and the Age of Mammals Hall. Each hall has its own unique theme to it while staying true to the feel of the museum overall.
The Hall of African Mammals had the elephants and lions we all know well set in displays that look like a natural surrounding. It was very well done. Their attention to detail even includes the plants and grasses that you would find these animals living along side. They also had animals we might not know as well such as the Arabian Oryx or the Okapi
The Age of Mammals Hall covered mammals in a different way. This hall covered how much change has happened as our world has evolved. While the Age of Mammals Hall has a total of 240 specimens, it had some fascinating displays on being human. We don't often get to see how our brain rests inside our skull, but you can here. You can see a cheetah next to a skeleton of one to see how it fits inside. You can also stand next to a shadow of three kinds of bears to see how you measure up.
There is a Hall of Birds, a wetlands display, shells, art and a bunch of other stuff we can't even cover without going on and on. The place has something for everyone. The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is an awesome place. If you love history and traveling then you might want to add this place to your next southern California vacation. We loved it and will be back soon. Until then, Happy travels.
