Recommended: Becoming Los Angeles Exhibit + Meeting / NHM
November 4, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
“The Museum’s permanent exhibition, now open, tells the story of how Los Angeles transformed from a tiny pueblo to a sprawling metropolis. It’s a 500-year saga of how L.A. went from cowboys to cars, which battles raged in its backyards, how Hollywood was born, and why an aqueduct changed everything.
“The newly reimagined exhibition is an even larger story. The most profound change is the bigger presence of the diverse voices of Angelenos. You’ll see a video in which community leaders share what it means to be an Indigenous Californian living in L.A. today. And at listening stations in the galleries, you’ll hear the audio recordings of Museum visitors who came before you, and then you can share your story about what L.A. is to you.”
1p – 3p: We will meet at the museum’s lobby by the Dueling Dinos and proceed to the exhibit as a group. After we finish exploring Becoming Los Angeles, we will reconvene downstairs at the café for discussion. Because we’ll be in the café, feel free to grab a snack, meal or beverage. We have good news to share with you: The Natural History Museum has graciously waived its admission fees for our group! (Parking charges will still apply.) We look forward to seeing you there.
3pm-4pm: NHM Grill debriefing
** We HAVE TO enter in as a group so please be at least 5 minutes early!
