Go Metro and Save $1.25 on Adult Admission!

Show your valid Metro pass or Metro Rail ticket at the box office and get $1.25 off adult admission. There are two NHM-convenient stops on the Metro Expo Line: the Expo/Vermont station or Expo Park/USC station.

(Hints: The Expo/Vermont station brings you by our Dueling Dinos statue. The pretty, short walk from Expo Park/USC is adjacent to the Rose Garden and NHM's renovated 1913 Building.)


Group Visits

Something For Everyone

The Natural History Museum welcomes groups of all shapes and sizes, from summer camps and after school programs, to bus tours and college classes. With thousands of artifacts, specimens and unique items on display, the Museum is sure to fascinate everyone in your group!

Easily located just minutes from downtown Los Angeles, NHM offers a unique and fun-filled excursion. Be sure to visit the two Museum stores where you’ll enjoy a special discount on toys, apparel, one-of-a-kind jewelry, books and souvenirs. Have lunch at the NHM Grill or pre-order a box lunch to enjoy in the adjacent beautiful Rose Garden.

Take a Guided Tour or Go Behind the Scenes

You can explore the Museum on your own, take a private guided tour or even enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour where your group will see areas not accessible to the public. Discounted rates are available for groups of 10 or more paid admission individuals with 72 hours advance notice. (Paid admission individuals are those people who would not normally be admitted free of charge. For example, Museum members, teachers, children age two and younger, and active military personnel would not count toward the 10 person minimum.)

A 50% non-refundable deposit is required when booking the reservation and the balance is due upon arrival. Please visit the FAQ page for all the details about which group package is right for you.
