Though it doesn't seem so from the outside, the museum has a number of exhibits, including live marine animals, pythons, exhibits on early man and Africa, and a detailed recreation of Tut's Tomb. There is also an aquarium tank created by the TV show "Tanked" which is filmed in Las Vegas. Being a natural history museum, there are of course... More

Our kids enjoyed our trip to the museum. A little smaller than expected our kids our teens now but they had some really great exhibits for the kids to enjoy. We usually try to visit a museum on each trip and thought we would stop in on our way to Hoover dam. So glad we did.

We enjoyed an afternoon exploring the museum. My favorite exhibit is the geology display. Still, a nice job was done with the animal and marine exhibits. The dinosaur display had animation and sounds effects that made it more interactive and thrilled children. The King Tut area was well done and very informative. I particularly liked the images that I could... More

This place is about a twenty minute walk from Fremont street. The admission fee is $10 so not overly expensive and is based over two floors. It has lots of stuffed animals and a small exhibition on Tutankhamen and ancient Egypt. Interesting place to visit although there's not a great deal to see, but worth $10 all the same. The... More

Having been to many natural history museums, this is one of the least impressive ones. On the other hand, admission is only $10, and it is a decent break from the strip. Can't imagine spending more than an hour though. The Neon Museum is nearby, so make sure to visit that as well.

This is a good place to spend a quiet hour or so. Most of the natural history exhibits are pretty dated but still informative. The highlight is the Egypt/King Tut exhibit. This reminds me of a touring exhibit, but here you can see it cheaper than elsewhere.

Very well done museum of artifacts. We enjoyed the variety of subjects displayed. The Dinosaur exhibit was especially interesting as well as the Egyptian era exhibits. Well worth the trip to spend a few hours here.

My boyfriend and I were in Las Vegas and thought it might be cool to do the non touristy stuff. We decided to see some museums. This was one on our list. First let me tell you that this place is not anywhere near the strip and not easy to get to. It is close to Fremont St but probably... More

They look like they are trying. But most of the displays look like they were created in the 70s. It would be nice if you were told when the display was actually created or at least when it was last updated. I wanted to pull out my phone and do some fact checking. Still, a nice break from the hustle... More

This was our first trip to Las Vegas on the way down to Mesa, AZ. We didn't know what to expect and the first day spent wandering the hot, stinky, disgusting Strip was horrible. I was ready to leave that day, but we'd booked the hotel for 2 nights. We finally wised up the 2nd day and got OFF the... More
