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.

Ok, so this is not a high-tech place - understand that first. The aquarium does not have the flair of Mandalay Bay, for example. Still, the Natural History Museum is this wonderful little museum near Old Downtown, with animal and history collections that are great for families with children (especially young children who like hands-on projects).

What it lacks in budget and space, it makes up for with great staff, interactive programs, and creativity. Kids will love the dinosaurs, and visitors of all ages will appreciate the very well done Egyptian exhibit and aquariums. Look for discount coupons on the internet, and check the Museum’s website for their schedule of traveling exhibits and free family friendly... More

Our family had a blast at the Natural History Museum just a short drive from the Stratosphere. Who knew our 3 year old could spend over 2 hours in a museum! He loved the dinosaurs and got to pet live iguana and a snake. Best part was all the hands-on activities for kids. A must see for families with young... More

We enjoyed our visit with our 2 & 4 year old boys. The staff was friendly and many of the exhibits were hands on and great for kids. Although some of the exhibits were older or lower budget, as other reviewers had mentioned, I felt that the emphasis was always on things being educational and they succeeded. My kids learned...
