The Discovery Science Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating young minds, assisting teachers, and increasing public understanding of science, math, and technology through interactive exhibits and programs. The idea of the Discovery Science Center began in 1984 when the boards of the Exploratory Learning Center and the Experience Center joined and formed the Discovery Museum of Orange County (DMOC). Simply stated, their goals were to teach kids what life was like at the turn of the century in Orange County in an interactive manner and to build a world-class hands-on science center.

They first developed the DMOC site, which now has two historic homes, a carriage barn, rose garden, riparian habitat, and much more. Once this project was up and running smoothly, the Board turned to achieving their second goal, building a hands-on science center.

Thank you for visiting the social calendar.

Mr. Events.

This weekend I learned that you don’t have to leave Los Angeles to be surrounded by nature. The city offers many destinations to visit right in your backyard. Discover the rich natural history of Los Angeles at The Page Museum at La Brea Tar Pits and explore the inner workings that make this area bubble. Visit the museum for a unique indoor/outdoor experience and find your place on the evolutionary map.

Inside the museum you’ll find many fossils, displays and murals that portray the way Los Angeles looked millions of years ago. There is also an exhibit that demonstrates the difficulty of escaping from the sticky tar that so many animals fell victim to. Outside the museum are gardens and live excavation sites much like those in Indiana Jones.

One of my favorite parts of the museum was the outdoor tour of the gardens and the excavation pits. The museum has the only excavation site in a major city in the country. Here you can see how archeologist work hands-on to unearth ancient fossils. While there, we watched a team dig and find the leg bone of a saber tooth cat. The tour is both educational and entertaining, and traveling around the museum in a group felt like we were migrating with a group of animals navigating the terrain around the tar pits, luckily nobody got stuck in the tar.

If you have ever wondered what goes bump in the night once the museum doors close, then sign up for their Overnight Adventures and spend a night at the museum! The adventure program is an opportunity to spend the night surrounded by the world-calss exhibits and includes a light eventing snack and continental breakfast. There are 3-4 fun and educational activities led by Museum educators and patches for all participants. Also, admission into the Museum all day, after the 9:00 am checkout.

Visit The Page Museum at La Brea Tar Pits for a glimpse into the past and a nature escape without having to plan an extensive trip out of the city. I recommend visiting the museum during a sunny day and allow two to three hours to enjoy.
