The highlight of the museum for us is definitely the exact reproduction of the famous King Tuts Tomb found in Luxor in Egypt. This was originally at the Luxor Casino and was overseen by a professional archaeologist. They moved it to the current museum a...More

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 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

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.

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.
