In celebration of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition, we recently hosted a photography contest for Los Angeles students. Our hope for this contest was to inspire children to connect with the world around them, even if that means exploring their backyard. #HowDoYouMuseum

Exactly 105 years ago this day, NHM - known then as the Los Angeles County Museum of History, Science, and Art - opened its doors to the public for the very first time! Whats your fondest memory of the museum? Comment below and share yours, or tag a friend youd like to bring along on your next visit.
