Great for families with kids. We had fun, cute little museum. The only thing that bothered me was that they have real animals' bodies there, lots of them.

This is a great museum! There are many attractions to see and lots to read and learn about. It is an interactive museum in some parts as well. Fun trip! We found a coupon for buy one get one free in the lobby of the hotel we were staying in.

It is sometimes tough to find a way to keep the younger kids entertained in Vegas without breaking the bank. This museum can help out for a couple hours. The exhibits are good. Nothing special, with a lot of just stuffed animals or dinosaur models, but the younger kids seem to like them. We went on a Saturday and they... More

A nice museum with quite a number of exhibits, but I had actually expected more from vegas and less generic natural history. There were lots and lots of animal statues, some dinosaurs, and an Egyptian section, which were all interesting enough, but a bit bland. There wasnt anything wrong with the museum per se, but it was simply boring and... More

There is a kid corner or section or play at the outside heritage park. They open from 10am - 4pm daily. Adult... More

There were a lot of displays on a variety of subjects packed into this museum. The kids liked the numerous stuffed animals, and learned some things about human evolution too. It was a quiet day when we visited, so it was nice to be able to see everything without people in the way.

We were looking for something to do in Las Vegas for a few hours (two adults). So we decided to tour the museum. Our tour took about twemty minutes. The exhibits were well worn. Many of the animals on display were mssing hair and skin. Inside of the building there was a build up of dust. There were two groups... More

This is a relatively small museum but worth a visit. It's basically all on one floor with just a few small exhibits downstairs, such as the exhibit on Africa. I enjoyed The Egyptian area which mostly replicates the objects found in King Tut's tomb. I also liked the exhibit showing many of the animals native to the Southwest--you can press... More
