More Dinosaurs! Natural History Museum Plans Expansion
The LA County Board of Supervisors approved the allocation of $31 million in private funds to expand the LA Natural History Museum, a project that's now in its final stages. According to a statement released by the county, the funding will be put towards a landscaped amphitheater, at least ten new gardens and a pond, as well as new fences to replace the concrete walls that currently contain the museum.
In the statement, City Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas expressed his support for the plans:
“The projects to be completed with this funding are practical, beautiful and environmentally engaging...They expand pedestrian access to a campus where indoor and outdoor activities and exhibits will blend seamlessly. Everyone who traverses Exposition Boulevard will have the opportunity to witnesses this transformation.”
In other words, folks, this might mean more dinosaurs.
