Autry Museum in Griffith Park Los Angeles


Kids can pan for gold, complete an art project in the workshop, all the while learning about intercultural history of the West

Eden Godsoe: Wow - what a great list. Makes me want to head to So Cal immediately. My son's uncles are taking him on a special trip for his 7th bday that needs to be on the west coast. We are in San Francisco so were thinking Las Vegas or Seattle but now I'm swinging more towards So Cal.

Take a tour to see packs of gray wolves, and maybe some endangered Mexican gray wolves....
