We launched a new website for one of Los Angeles’ greatest attractions: the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits. The Tar Pits boast asphalt seeps that represent the only consistently-active and urban Ice Age Excavation site in the world. The dig site and its fossils tell the story of life in that exact location, 40,000 years ago.
The website redesign parallels the indoor and outdoor experiences of the museum. Explore the Tar Pits and the excavation process outside but take a closer look inside at the research and exhibitions.
Features of the website include updates of new discoveries as they happen; downloadable scavenger hunts and teacher guides; an interactive map of the campus and suggested itineraries; a chronological overview of the La Brea Tar Pits and surrounding area.
