The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County‘s $75 million renovation and expansion project, NHM Commons, is to open in 2024.

NHM Commons, designed by Frederick Fisher & Partners with landscape design by Studio-MLA, will add 60,000 square feet of space to the museum in LA’s Exposition Park.

“As construction moves forward on the site’s beautiful and inviting new indoor and outdoor spaces, we have been building upon our strategic principle of being museums of, for and with LA and shaping an NHM Commons philosophy grounded in co-curation with fellow Angelenos,” said Lori Bettison-Varga, the museum’s president and director.
