Do you want to capture the imagination of your kids? Take them to the La Brea Tar Pits Museum in Los Angeles.
Yeah, they will squirm all the way there and you’ll probably want to wring their little necks once or twice before getting there, but – and it’s a Big But – once there they’ll be transformed into the little angels you always wished they were. With eyes as large as saucers they’ll squeal with delight at the magnificent display of giant sabre tooth cats, American lions, giant bears, and sloths, and well, all sorts of extinct animalsaurs that scientists have pulled from the muck.
Uh-huh, so what’s in it for you, the adult? You ask. A return to childhood, old sport. You’ll like this adventure as much as your rug rats.
