Google maps directions to the NHM parking structure
If you put these GPS coordinates in the search field exactly in your favorite mapping app like Google Maps or Waze it will get you to the entrance of the parking.
Make sure to add the - hyphen before the 118 or you’ll be driving to China 🇨🇳 😅

Get your free tickets here
It is very important to get your tickets now online at the link below as we will not wait for people that are standing in line waiting to get a ticket.
Important: Parking, arrival time and getting a ticket to this event
See map at this link below. The NHM car park opens at 9:15 AM and is limited to 200 cars so if you wanna park there then I suggest to be onetime when it opens at 9:15 AM. If the lot is full they will direct you to the other parking lot which you can see at the link below.
If you do park in the other parking lot then after parking walk over to the North entrance which is where we are meeting inside. We are not meeting at the south entrance which is the front desk.
NHM Parking lot is $12 dollars CASH ONLY. There is alternative transportation info at the link below like the metro.

Ticket: It's very important that you get a ticket before you at the link below or you will have to wait in a very long line. The line is for people that don't have tickets yet.
First we will go to the Natural History Museum, then we will walk to the other museums. Bringing an umbrella is highly recommend.
California Science Center, and Cal African American Museum
Note: walking from the NHM to the African American Museum is about 3 blocks in distance one way. We will most likely go to the Cal Science first as it's in between the two.
