Group Visits

Something For Everyone

At the Natural History Museum discover your world past and present. Your group will encounter dinosaurs, experience nature, explore our dioramas and marvel at one of the most impressive gem and mineral collections in the world. And that’s just the beginning.

We welcome groups of all shapes and sizes, and want to provide you with an experience your group will never forget. Whether you are planning a visit for a few hours or have all day, we’ll make it easy for you to customize your trip.

Take a Guided Tour

Create a day your group will never forget by adding on one of our group tours. Let our Gallery Interpreters take your group on a private tour of one of our exhibits:

Dinosaur                  

Travel to the past in our Dino Hall. From the tiny fruitadens, the size of a chihuahua, to the towering T. rex, discover the biggest, the smallest and everything in between. Get a closer look at some of the new discoveries made by NHM’s Dinosaur Institute in the field of paleontology.

Nature                     

Explore our Nature Gardens, see the amazing plant life and the wildlife it attracts. Learn how our researchers are studying the incredible biodiversity that calls Los Angeles home in this new outdoor exhibit.

Tours can be added for a group of 10 or more people with five days advanced notice.
