Small museum which packs a punch. Everything from life on the African savannah to moving life sized dinosaurs to King Tut and ancient Egyptian customs (excellent exhibit) to desert survival to ocean (and other waters) activity to religions and their similarities to big mineral collection. Impressive information flow and taxidermy. Seasonal Christmas Trees and Holiday Observances around the world displays... More

Very basic museum but still there were so many things to learn. Excellent place for kids. Some snakes just terrified me. Egyptian section was great.Tickets were very cheap. I reckon there are better museums in USA than this but if you have plenty of spare time in Vegas then you can visit this museum,

We went to the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. It is a very well done museum with exhibits and movies to see. Nevada is very good at their animal displays. We have seen several in other parts of the state, and this is the best "taxidermy" display of animals in the Las Vegas area. There is a modest admission charge.... More

My sister got married in Vegas last month, which was great - however I have a 2 year old and 5 year old and therefore was dreading taking them to Vegas. I fortunately have been to Vegas a few times as an adult and so didn't need to see the hotels etc and so made the effort to go to... More

Fairly small museum, but well worth visiting especially with children. Features the Egyptian (reproductions) objects which had been displayed some years ago at the Luxor. Dinosaur room, various local animal and rock exhibits, etc. Next to the original Mormon front and first settlement area of Las Vegas, north on Las Vegas Blvd.

We liked that it was small enough to not be overwhelming, while also being fairly complete. However, many of the exhibits were either not labeled at all, or were labeled with signs that you could not actually read (some of the white lettering on glass). Also, some information was not up to date. Fun, but could definitely be improved.

NOT a big museum and not a new museum but a fun and varied museum with a little of everything from the Africa room with most every animal (stuffed) on close display to displays of fish and desert critters and of course the dinosaur section and the little kids discovery area. I took grandkids (13 down to 5) and we... More

Sometimes you go to museums and they are so huge you find yourself going so fast just to see everything.. Not the case here. Lots of things to see from Rome to Egypt, rocks and fossils, desert animals and tropical ones. Even some dinosaurs! Perfect.. Enjoyed my time here.. * If you have smaller children beware that some of the... More

For a small museum it has plenty to see. Far more interesting than well named museums. They have a exhibition on of Ancient Rome the empire that shaped the world, until Sept. There are displays of prehistoric animals, African Savannah animals, a marine life gallery, African rainforest and local wildlife displays. On weekends they have a critter connection, where you...
