The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) has announced extended summer hours from 5 pm to 8 pm every Friday, beginning July 9 through August 6.
The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County include the Natural History Museum, La Brea Tar Pits, and the William S. Hart Museum. They operate under the collective vision to inspire wonder, discovery, and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds.
The museums hold one of the world’s most extensive and valuable collections of natural and cultural history—more than 35 million objects.
Visitors can enjoy an evening with live DJs in the Nature Gardens, DIY activities for the family, and food and beverages at the NHM Grill. The ground and first floors of the Museum will remain open, including the Butterfly Pavilion, Nature Lab, Dinosaur Hall, 3D theater, and iconic diorama halls.
NHM’s two newest exhibitions, Spiky, Hairy, Shiny: Insects of L.A. and Rise Up L.A.: A History of Votes for Women are on view in first floor galleries.
Advanced timed-ticket reservations are no longer required, and walk-ups are welcome. However, reserving general admission, special exhibition, and theater tickets in advance of your visit is encouraged.
NHM is located at 900 Exposition Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90007. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit NHM.org/nhm-extended-hours.
