|Unless stated otherwise, ALL general meetings of the
Los Angeles Mycological Society are held in the Times-Mirror Meeting
Room at the Natural
History Museum of Los Angeles County, 900 Exposition Boulevard, Los
Angeles, CA 90007
VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE!! Due to construction at the Natural History Museum, effective January 2015 the entrance we use to access the Times-Mirror Room has CHANGED. Please read the updated directions below as well as the maps provided to save yourself time and needless exertion.
Important Note to LAMS members and other meeting attendees who may be using an old map: People who are unfamiliar with the area should be aware that the short stretch of Menlo Ave. near the Museum and Exposition Park has now been renamed Bill Robertson Lane, and street signs have been changed accordingly.
Beginning with the January, 2013 meeting we will begin
using the Museum parking lot we used until May, 2009. This lot is
east of Bill Robertson Lane at the northwest corner of the Museum.
The entrance is approximately 100 feet south of Exposition Boulevard
The new lot is adjacent to the Museum and is more secure than where we
presently park and will also not require a crossing of Bill Robertson
Lane as in the past. Please do not park in the "EVENT
PARKING" lot on the west side of Bill Robertson Lane that we have
used for the past three years.
LATEST UPDATE October 2015: The route to the Times Mirror Room is still circuitous, and after-hours guests still need to enter the Museum through the huge glass pavilion on the north side of the building and hike through the halls. However, on entering the CarPark you will see a gate directly ahead at the bottom of the ramp leading to the lower level of the garage. A door in the gate is quite near the entrance to the pavillion. There is no need to walk through the Nature Garden. If in doubt, ask the guard in the security booth for directions.
Times Mirror Room Map From the North Staff Entrance, proceed according to the diagram past the museum café (NHM Grill), along a staff corridor and past two sets of swinging doors. At the top of a ramp, which you will see ahead, another set of doors takes you outside the building. Signs will direct you to a door leading back into the building. It provides access to the back of the Times Mirror Room and also (via the auditorium) to the TMR Annex. PDF of this map here.
