This large Spanish Renaissance style building is right by the University of Southern California. It's been built in 1913 and is home to dinosaurs, birds, minerals, and the lives of the American Indigenous people. The collection also holds one of two known preserved megamouth sharks. However, the biggest attraction is probably the "Fighting Dinosaurs", where life-sized models were put together from real bones. Phone 1-213-763-DINO
