The Los Angeles Natural History Museum has an impressive amount of dinosaur bones due to the La Brea Tar Pits. They opened an excavation site for volunteers to chip away at the ground right next door to the museum with a path leading you to digs and archeological finds. The dinosaur hall and the history hall are across from each other and this time when we went, we got to see "The Silk Road".
We couldn't film or photograph the exhibit, but they only thing I found most impressive was the ten foot long loom. There were artifacts and interesting tidbits about the silk road; what it was like to travel on, how long it took and why people traveled that far on foot, etc. however while I found the details interesting, I thought the displays were wonderfully done, carefully arranged and respect the organization and time it took for this event. So much history was packed into the making of "The Silk Road" and I enjoyed their exhibit.
