  • Obviously the city of Las Vegas is not going to contribute much to museums like this so I wasn't expecting much. This place is a bit run down and the exhibits are super old but you can really feel the spirit of education as soon as you walk in. The employees made this place great. They were attentive, excited, engaging and knowledgeable. I can't speak highly enough of them! I'm giving five stars to those amazing people who are doing the best with what they have and continuing the spirit of curiosity and knowledge one gains from visiting a museum. Good job guys!
  • The Mormon fort was so neat! It's super reasonable to get in at only 3 dollars a person. There's a bunch of relics from that time all through the place. A good section of the wall and one tower are still standing and you can walk around inside of it. There's a bunch of pictures and even a movie to tell you about its history. And a little creek with a coy pond as well. Very worth it as a tourist!
  • I really like bringing my 3 and 4 year old to this museum. They really enjoy it. Although it is probably geared at kids a little older, my nieces (9,10,11 y.o.) Love it and spend more time with the exhibits. My 4 year old son is an inquisitive kid and he asks alot of questions and spends some time on stuff, especially the dinosaurs. My 3 year old is a little wild and runs all over and does her own thing. We usually spend between 1 to 2 hours here and come every few months.
  • My kids loves Dinosaurs! The perfect place to get their fix. My only issue... When they have their "critter" gathering is they went over more than two. Or did two completely opposite animals. My last two visits they brought out lizards... Boring. Seriously you have spiders. Mix it up!
  • Best LV has to offer. This museum has enough cool exhibits to entertain my 2 1/2 year old for an hour or two...she asks to go there all the time! She LOVES all of the taxidermy, the dinosaur exhibit, the Egyptian exhibit, the live animals, reptiles, insects, amphibians, and fish on display...they even have a shark feeding there for viewing on Saturday and Tuesday each week! The taxidermy collection is truly amazing and worth a visit...go support this family-friendly and educational museum...such a refreshing thing to do in Vegas!
