Kick off the day with a visit to the LA Natural History Museum. Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature at the new 31/2 acre Nature Garden complete with pond, Get Dirty Zone, edible garden and living wall. Check out the nature lab for hands-on animal presentations and don't miss the Butterfly Pavilion or the famous Dinosaur exhibit! General museum admission is $12 for adults and $5 for children.
After a morning learning about nature, head next-door for a picnic in the Exposition Park Rose Garden. This stunning garden has been a part of Los Angeles history since 1928 and is now a destination for LA natives and tourists alike. The park is open to the public daily from 9am to sunset and is the perfect place to "stop and smell the roses."
