Forest Lawn Museum of Mexican and American History

Forest Lawn Memorial Park has several places including the cemetery to visit. One option is Forest Lawn Museum of Mexican and American History. It is a place in which visitors can find out more about Mexican and American ties, and the past which has merged these two cultures. The museum is located at 6300 Forest Lawn Drive in Los Angeles, California. It is also in the Hollywood Hills district.

The museum is full of history, which dates back to the Aztecs. There is a recreation of an Aztec calendar. Another exhibit is a Mayan Tomb. Some of the displays are costumes, mosaics, and reproduced goods found in Mexico. Other displays are of genuine goods brought back from Mexico and found at archeological digs. Mayan and Toltec displays, along with some ancient ruins have been replicated for visitors to learn and see. Admission into the museum is free; however, the hours can be somewhat restrictive based on volunteers running the place.

The American history begins with Native American tribes and moves up to the merger of Spanish, Mexican and Americans before California was independent and a state of the US.
