Free Admission at Natural History Museum Tuesday and Wednesday This Week


In recognition of the 100th anniversary of both the Los Angeles Aqueduct and the Natural History Museum (NHM),  the NHM is offering free admission for the public this Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 5-6, 2013 as part of their “Water & Culture” program.

Exactly 100 years ago today Angelenos, along with cattle ranchers and citrus farmers, cheered the opening of the aqueduct that sent water down from the Owens Valley to a very thirsty Los Angeles some 230 miles away. The following day, Nov. 6, 1913, the Natural History Museum opened in Los Angeles.

To celebrate two such significant events in LA’s history the museum is opening a special exhibition titled Just Add Water: Artworks Inspired by the L.A. Aqueduct by Rob Reynolds. Reynolds’ large scale watercolors explore the history and significance of importing water to Los Angeles.

If you haven’t been to NHM in a while, it’s time to stop in again.

The NHM’s Dinosaur Hall is considered one of the finest in the world with 20 complete dinosaur skeletons and sea creatures, not to mention over 300 real fossils. Or check out the Insect Zoo where some of the smallest creatures are explored in depth, or the new gardens that surround the NHM.

Reserve your free tickets for the NHM online and make it a no-wait kind of visit.
