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

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.
