Sneak Peek: Beaux-Arts 1913 Building Preps to Open Again
On November 6, 1913 the then-named Los Angeles Museum of History, Science and Art opened. Nearly a hundred years later, LA's first museum building is almost ready for public consumption.
With two years of construction and architectural preservation complete, the Natural History Museum's Beaux-Arts 1913 Building (which is next to the currently open buildings where First Fridays, etc, is hosted) is beginning to install new exhibits. It will officially open over the few years with new exhibits opening each Spring or Summer.
First will be the Age of Mammals hall and Rotunda exhibitions in summer of 2010. Then the Dinosaur Mysteries exhibit in the summer of 2011 and Under the Sun in spring of 2012. The renovation and new exhibit designs will nearly triple the objects on view from the Museum’s massive collection of art, artifacts and specimens.
