Archaeology Dig

Saturday–Sunday (except January 22, 23, 29, and 30)

About the Program

Imagine you are an archaeologist at the Archaeology Dig! Sift and sort to find replicas of ancient artifacts buried beneath the sand, weigh and examine your findings, and analyze clues to discover what we have in common with people who lived three thousand years ago.

The Archaeology Dig is open until 4:15 pm on Saturdays, Sundays, and select Thursdays. If you reserve 3:00–4:00 pm tickets to Noah’s Ark at the Skirball, please plan to visit the Dig beforehand. 

“My child was fully immersed in the Archaeology Dig, enjoying all the tools provided at the site.”
