La Brea Tar Pits
The world’s most famous ice age fossil excavation site is located in the heart of Los Angeles. After the Ice Age creatures are excavated, they are brought into the La Brea Tar Pits Museum. That’s where you will see the best fossils on display. There are over one million fossils from 650 species that range from a Columbian mammoth tusk to the tooth of a baby mouse. And, you can also watch paleontology in action. You will get a peek into the past and see the preserved bones of long extinct Ice Age animals, such as woolly mammoths and sabre tooth tigers.
