NHM Journeys

The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County have brought a world of discovery to Los Angeles for over a century. NHM Journeys is our chance to take you far beyond L.A. to experience firsthand the wonders that inspire our researchers’ incredible work.

On each of our journeys, museum experts lead their own uniquely crafted itineraries through fascinating locations around the globe. Expeditions are limited to intimate groups of Fellows members and feature access to people and places no other excursion can provide. Travelers visit sites related to our experts’ groundbreaking work at the forefront of science and culture. Along the way, we explore the culture, history and beauty of some of the world’s most special places.

Participation in NHM Journeys is an exclusive benefit for the museums' Fellows members. For more information about Fellows or NHM Journeys, contact Cristina Rosales at crosales@nhm.org or 213.763.3253.
