It's tar. In a pit. With the Jungle Book elephants in it.
Right across the street from the Craft and Folk Art Museum (see #24) lies the hottest tar pit this side of the Rockies. It's hot. Literally.
I didn't bother with the adjoining Page museum (next time!), but the park itself was hardly crowded and made for a nice weekend stroll in the sun. After you're finished, stroll on over to one of the many other museums along this stretch of Wilshire (it's called "Museum Row", after all!).
