NHM Commons—Frederick Fisher and Partners' $75 million expansion to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles—has topped out. The glass-enclosed wing will offer visitors free admission to a 70-ft.-long Diplodocus skeleton and Barbara Carrasco's mural L.A. History: A Mexican Perspective.
A lot is happening in Exposition Park. The California African American Museum, closed for upgrades, reopens Aug. 5, 2023. NHM Commons is expected to open late 2024, in advance of the adjacent Lucas Museum of Narrative Art's 2025 debut.
