This weekend offers a great opportunity to visit a couple of awesome museums.
Today is National Fossil Day so the Page Museum is opening its doors to the public for FREE! I guess that means I should receive some special attention if I go. Regular admission for adults is $12. The Page museum is a really nice museum to expose kids to the wonders of fossils. It’s not too big where they will get bored and the exhibits are presented in very unique perspectives. Also, there are some really fun hills outside to roll down from. The original Farmer’s Market is also close by so head over there for some delicious food if the kiddos get hungry.
It’s also Target Free Family Saturday at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo! The theme for tomorrow is “Zap, Pow, Bam” in celebration of their new exhibition, Marvels & Monsters. Children will have an opportunity to create their own capes and masks while they’re there. If you’re hungry afterwards, consider visiting Shinsengumi for some my most favorite delicious ramen. Parking can be a pain as well as expensive around Little Tokyo so for some added fun, consider taking the Gold Line (or the King Taco line as we like to call it) to the Little Tokyo station. It will drop you off right across the street from the museum. Most of the stations have free parking.
