When our grandkids (ages 2-13) heard the word museum, they weren't thrilled about going. We didn't know what to expect and Papa told them it's good to try new things so they begrudgingly went. They had several floors of different hands on activities to participate...More

This place really shouldn't be called a museum, considering it doesn't really contain artifacts. Don't be fooled by the exhibit descriptions online! The galleries are each one room (besides the Egypt "exhibit" where you walk through 3rd grade art projects in a hallway that turns)...More

This is a small, fairly low budget museum that has some great surprises buried within. The first couple rooms are not very exciting, with a seemingly random collection of taxidermy animals and another with rocks. Travel further in, however, and you’ll find it gets better...More

I was surprised how small this museum actually is. However, it is still impressive and I quite enjoyed walking through and looking at everything. The animals are very lifelike!

I came here with my lovely wife on Tuesday, 24 July 2018, to see an unusual attraction in Las Vegas. I was not disappointed. There are a wealth of exhibits that display replicas of the Nevada desert, native wild animals, oceanography, and Middle Eastern artifacts....More

Staff extremely nice and helpful, paleontologist on site when we visited who informed us of current ongoing projects. We visited as part of our Las Vegas Pass but would of been happy to pay to enter. Great for families too.

This museum may be small, but it houses some wonderful collections. We were there in May--and it was unusually warm--so we elected to do some inside exploring away from the casinos

My boys (5 and 7) love dinosaurs and sea creatures. This museum feels older but it was fun for the boys. They enjoyed the current exhibit of the lizards before the dinosaurs because of the moving and talking lizards. These animatronics were a great learning...More

It’s $12 for adults, but we didn’t pay much attention to the price for children. You can get in free with an ASTC museum membership.

Thanks for the link Dice. I got my info from the Las Vegas Weekly (the print magazine). Enjoy. It is a nice museum. If you do this, also look into visiting the Neon Boneyard and Mob Museum with a combo ticket. Make reservations for the Neon Museum. All three are in the same area. The address for the Las Vegas Natural History Museum is: 900 Las Vegas Blvd.
