Walk into the Museum's open-air pavilion, starting Sunday, September 21, and get up close to spiders spinning their intricate webs. In an anteroom exhibit, we’re also showcasing jumping spiders like this one!
This 12-carat blue diamond, one of the rarest gems worldwide, has taken up temporary residence in the Museum's Gem Vault! Stop in and see how it sparkles!
The Museum's exhibition, Just Add Water, has been extended through January 19, 2015! See large-scale watercolor works that were inspired by the L.A. Aqueduct, which helped shape our modern metropolis.
In partnership with San Francisco State University, ZomBee Watch is a project that will help scientists better understand the distribution of the Zombie Fly, a parasitic fly that turns honeybees into zombies. Find out how to become a ZomBee Hunter!
We want to find out where reptiles and amphibians live throughout Southern California. To do this, we need your help!
We're in the final phase of the biggest transformation in our history! By the time we're done, we'll have twice as much space for programs, and five new permanent exhbits. The NHM Next campaign is what makes it all possible.

An unprecedented $13 million gift from The Otis Booth Foundation enabled the Museum to build a spectacular glass entrance pavilion for its new Nature Gardens. A magnificent, 63-foot fin whale specimen suspended inside in the Otis Booth Pavilion was unveiled at NHM's 100th anniversary festivities in June, 2013.
KPCC went behind the scenes to film in our "whale warehouse." It's where we store and research huge mammal skeletons.
