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

The museum offered an excellent interaction experience for all children and even the adults seemed to be enjoying. The area where you can watch the scientist work on the artifacts is extremely interesting. As someone commented, some of the animal and marine life exhibits needed money spent on them, but they were obviously well maintained, just extremely old. Well worth... More

While visiting Las Vegas in April, we wanted to do something away from the strip that was family friendly and "found" the museum. We were very impressed by its size and the quality of the exhibits and spent about 3-4 hours enjoying everything it had to offer.

The museum really needs some updating, especially to its live animal tanks. The snakes barely had any room, the sharks and rays had only a small dirty tank to swim in. Lots of rust and growth in the little tanks. The Egypt exhibit was fairly interesting, but it would have been helpful to have more information as to what was... More

We arrived early Saturday morning to find only 4 other there. Excellent value of $2.00 per person. Very clean, great for the kids, lots of pride in running and ownership of Museum. Smaller inside but great walking history. Best money we spent.

This is a great little museum! There are a lot of interactive features, mostly meant for kids but adults will love them too! Great dinosaur displays and information. There was a section on ancient Egypt, marine life , rainforest and different climates, and prehistoric man. Also a nice little mineral collection, and of course information and displays about desert life.

The museum is quite a journey at the suburbs of Las Vegas, difficult to get but even more challenging to get back. The content of the museum is very average and the exponents are not special and as well not specially presented. No recommendation to go and visit, incl with kids.

I live in Washington, DC, so my view of this museum was colored by my many visits to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. I've also visited the American Museum of Natural History in New York several times. If you remember that this museum was never intended to compete with those places, you and your family will probably have fun.... More

My family and I had a wonderful time here. We enjoyed all the artifacts and rich history it had to offer. The staff was friendly, too.
