The famous La Brea Tar Pits in Hancock Park will reopen to the public Thursday for the first time in more than a year.
- The La Brea Tar Pits will reopen today after it shut down last year amid the pandemic. It joins its sister museum, The Natural History Museum at Exposition Park, which reopened to the public last week. In advance, ticket purchases with reserved times will be required for all guests. So don't just show up. And you got to bring your face coverings.
