We spent an enjoyable two-plus hours here on a weekday in early December. This isn’t an especially modern museum, but as a couple in our early 50s with no kids, this place held our attention and kept us occupied. Right after entering the museum, there was a large room to the right with taxidermied animals, some of which were old... More

We highly recommend this museum we spent 3 hours there. So much to see it wasn't busy so we were able to read and do all the activities.

my son and I where looking for something to do and stumbled on the LV natural history museum. I was pleasantly surprised. No comparison to the Smithsonian but I was surprised LV had a natural Museum at all. Geared toward children but it was a nice afternoon.

The museum was a great way to spend half a day on our boys birthday and he has such great memories of his 8th birthday in Vegas from the UK. Dont expect it to rival the British Natural History Museum, but it is a truly great day out !

My father brought me here when i was young i loved it so much. Everything was very exciting as they have many things for you to interact with. The museum usually changes some things or improve every few months or so. I still go to this museum and take my nieces whenever they come to visit and they love it!... More

This is not the Smithsonian, by any means. But, I was impressed by the number of exhibits. There is a 2 for 1 coupon on the internet, so we decided to check it out. I am glad we did. Geared toward school field trips, there are many short videos that give information about the animals/ dinosaurs, I had a ball.

Great exhibit on Ancient Egypt with some manipulative blocks for the young, fun African animal exhibit, nice Marine exhibit with variety of fish in aquariums, good hands-on area for kids to explore different science based activities near the dinosaur and fossil exhibit.

I really enjoyed visit to the History Museum because there was a lot of local information to absorb that doesn't come up around the tourist areas of Vegas. There is a Egyptian display about the discovering and opening of King Tuts Tomb like no other in the country. The curator will tell you millions were spent on it and it... More
