Parking is available for $8 (cash only) in the Museum’s Car Park on Exposition Blvd. and Bill Robertson Lane. If the Car Park is full, patrolled lots are also available directly across from the Museum on Bill Robertson Lane for $10 (cash only), as well as in lots throughout Exposition Park.
Parking rates and availability may vary during special events in Exposition Park. NHM has designated parking during USC games.
The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) has selected Trimana to operate the Museum’s foodservice operations. The NHM Grill opened July 18.
The new restaurant will eventually open onto the Museum’s vibrant Nature Gardens, 3.5 acres of urban wilderness experiences and exhibits, set to debut in 2013.
Trimana, a restaurant and catering group, has 52 locations in Los Angeles — the majority of them provide fast-casual dining in office building space. It has recently expanded to other venues, including the LAUSD headquarters, and several new venues are under development.
The new NHM Grill serves a variety of made-to-order gourmet grilled sandwiches and burgers, fresh salads and wraps, made-from-scratch soups, kid-friendly favorites, vegetarian options, and a large variety of snacks.
If you’re bringing your own food, we invite you to picnic under the trees on the grass in front of the Museum, or on the picnic benches overlooking the Rose Garden adjacent to the Museum.
We appreciate your help in preserving our collections and the Museum. Please finish your purchases in the cafe or if you brought food from home, please enjoy it outside. Food and beverages are not allowed inside any of the Museum halls and exhibits.
