Hot Sloth Summer Comes to Tar Pits!

La Brea Tar Pits Announces “Summer of Sloths” Celebrating the Adorable Ice Age Giants 

From June 3 through Labor Day, visitors can enjoy special programming at La Brea Tar Pits that celebrates the science and wonder of sloths. This summer, visitors can participate in unique self- guided tours, witness the Ice Age coming to life in Titans of the Ice Age, and even touch a fossil.

Sloths are iconic symbols of Ice Age Los Angeles and La Brea Tar Pits. The giant and slow-moving creatures that once inhabited L.A. have a chill and laid-back charm that resonates with Angelenos. Three different types of sloths have been found at the Tar Pits: the Shasta, the Jefferson’s, and the Harlan’s ground sloth; all much bigger and more intimidating than modern-day sloths. Building on the success of the Museum’s popular 2023 Sloth Soirée, visitors can also look forward to a sloth meet-and-greet on July 26.

Explore at your own pace with a self-guided Summer of Sloths tour (also available in Spanish).
