  • We liked that it was small enough to not be overwhelming, while also being fairly complete. However, many of the exhibits were either not labeled at all, or were labeled with signs that you could not ...  read more »

  • If have to travel to LV with young children, this is a great place to spend a few hours. Very interactive. Staff are super friendly and informative. 
  • 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.
  • fun! i have been there many times and it never gets boring! went there with my family a few times and also went there for a field trip! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • This is an inexpensive way to spend an educational afternoon with kids of all ages. There is a play room for kids to explore amd live sharks and sting rays for viewing, not touching. There is an aquatic room, 2 rooms dedicated to NV, an Africa area that consists of a few rooms, and a dinosaur room. My favorite room is the Ancient Egyptian room with artifacts from Tutankhamun's tomb. They have a room that changes all the time. We've seen insects, dinosaurs, and most recently artifacts from the Roman Empire.
  • We had a membership here for two years and went allllll the time. The oceanic exhibit is worth the dues by itself. We love to go when the sharks and rays are getting fed. My only complaint is that the gift shop is right by the entrance/exit and the door is always wide open so if you have little kids, it can be a problem. I wish they'd just close the gift shop door and put an open sign on it. If they did that, we'd definitely renew our membership.
  • Las Vegas Natural History Museum is where my son saw his first Santa Claus, dinosaurs and artifacts from Egypt. We literally did not know where to go for Christmas to see Santa Claus, but we found heard through City Hall in Las Vegas that Santa was going to be at the museum. We went and got a free coupon for pizza at the Fashion Mall.
