The Nature Lab is a 6,500-square-foot, hands-on gallery showcasing live animals, media interactives, scientist demonstrations, and more than 200 specimens for visitors to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Los Angeles is located inside a biodiversity hotspot, and the evidence is everywhere—if we know how to look. The Nature Lab is the place where visitors can “put on their nature eyes” and learn to see what they’ve never seen before about wildlife in Los Angeles.
