Much closer to LAUPT, don’t confuse La Brea Tarpits with Brea California which is near Fullerton.

Yes

Train to LA Union station

Metro Purple line subway line to Western/Normadie station.

Metro bus 20 Western/Normadie to Wilshire/Curson and the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum

From Fullerton Ca take Metrolink or Amtrak to LAUPT. At LAUPT go downstairs get on purple line subway to end of line at Wishire and Western. At Wilshire go up to street level and take Metro bus west on Wilshire to the Tar Pits. Return same way. In five plus years subway will be finished that far and bus ride will not be required

Be prepared for a long trip though, you are probably looking at an hour and a half to two hours depending on your wait at each transfer.  The Tar Pits are pretty cool, make sure to walk the grounds and see some of the pits outside the museum.

Check out this information from the LA County Museum of Art, which is adjacent to the Tar Pits:

Thanks for all the help. 
I am aware that Brea is a city in Orange County
I was raised in Fullerton, but have not lived there 
for almost 40 years.
Fullerton Depot is a lot different now than then.

Thanks again
Kevin
