Comments about Smart Destinations La Brea Tar Pits and Museum:

Very good but small museum. Shows you skulls and bones of animals that were stuck in the tar. The Sabercats were the most intriguing. Didn't know Los Angeles once had Lions. Kids will like this place. Will come again. Parking costs the same as admission. ($12 as of this date)
