Of Mice and Men

Despite what you might expect, the displays in the Natural History Museum in LA aren’t all about flora and fauna. The “Becoming Los Angeles” permanent exhibition covers 500 years of SoCal history, from Spanish missions to the present.

We liked the rather makeshift looking workbench above. It was made in 1923 by Walt Disney, from old packing crates and a camera. It was used as an animation stand for making Mickey Mouse cartoon movies. There is even a note written by Walt, reminding the animators what to do.
