LA's Natural History: The Old and the New LA County's Natural History Museum is 100 years old but, even though it's about history, "old" is not a word it's using these days. One of the many "new" additions is called " Becoming Los Angeles , " a 14,000 square foot, permanent exhibition that covers five centuries of cultural and ecological history. It'll open this coming July. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez got a preview.

Dinosaur Hall at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County contains fossil exhibits unique in the world, including a 25-foot long Triceratops with a skull weighing more than 900 pounds, and the Tyrannosaurus Rex Growth Series, featuring skeletons of the youngest known baby T-Rex, an adolescent and a young adult. The $135 million make-over required two familiar buildings, constructed in 1913 and 1920.
