Los Angeles' Evolutionary History Explored
This summer the Los Angeles Natural History Museum in Exposition Park opened its "Age of Mammals" exhibit to the public. The exhibit covers 65 million years of Los Angeles' evolutionary history in a light-filled, modern hall which houses the enormous mastodon fossils unearthed in Simi Valley. The renovated wing of the museum is significantly different from the classical sections of the museum, but no less eye-catching. The new hall is part of the museum's $107 million dollar restoration initiative. During the summer of 2011 "Dinosaur Mysteries," a new exhibit showcasing more than 300 dinosaur specimens, including 20 full-body specimens, will open to the public.
