  • I've heard people say that this place isn't that impressive or nothing like others they've been too. But well this is the one in Vegas and so what if it's not as big as the one in NY or LA but it's still great! Especially for kids my toddlers were both so extatic about the place and if they enjoyed themselves I enjoy myself. It was fun, the dinosaurs moving was very neat. I defiantly recommend it
  • Disapointing. I was expecting fossils from the area as it is known world wide for these. Nothing but a few small examples. Everything large or major was a replica. There was very little pertaining to the geology of the area. Considering that the grand Canyon is close by and all of these fascinating geological creations are all around you here, the imformation on these features was non existent. For my money , don't go there unless it's raining or you have nothing else to do. Quite a shame , really.
  • Absolutely wonderful i took my 2 year old here and he absolutely loved it. I thought i was going to be disappointed but i wasnt dont let the appearance fool you
  • I took my wife and 2 year old here for a fun evening out. We were not disappointed. The marine exhibit was quite fun and the Roman exhibit was amazing. All in all the entire museum, while smaller, was very well put together and fun.
  • Great museum for the kids. There's a Dino exhibit, live sea life they can check out, and a variety of other exhibits to keep them interested. If you sign up for their annual membership you get free access to hundreds of national museums like La Brea Tar Pits, Seattle's Pacific Science Center (This one alone saved my family about 100.00), etc. My family has used these passes a few times as 'Rainy day insurance' while on vacation so we have backup plans in the event of bad weather.
