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). When I was last... More

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...

This is our second trip to this lovely museum. We had brought our grandchildren this time and they loved it...especially the Egyptian exhibit. They had a great time looking at all the fish exhibits and making the dinosaur's roar. Imagine my surprise when I got back to Vermont and heard a voicemail from Linda at the Museum that they had...

It is much larger on the inside with a second story basement level. Definitely enough to do for a couple of hours. Live animals including a shark hatchery, snake and sharks. There is an exhibit about Egypt and one about Africa as well as animatronic dinosaurs, fossils and rocks. Fun and educational. 😃

Nice small museum, seeing all the animals up close was interesting, $25 for a family of 3 for about 2 hours is good. Dinosaurs are ok for younger kids, seen better repliicas. Egypt displays were interesting. My 10 year old enjoyed it, but younger kids would have more fun especially if they get to play in the playground on site.
