Where are we going today?
Las Vegas isn't all about casinos! Nope - in fact, there is a host of family fun to be had, and one of those adventures is a day at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum!
Kids of all ages will love the exhibits here, as they cover a host of topics that will engage and educate!
Exhibits include the Treasures of Egypt, where kids can find out how the amazing archaeologists in the early 20th century uncovered some of the most amazing treasures that we know today - in particular the tomb of Tutankhamun!
Have you ever wondered what can be found in the depths of the ocean? In the Marine Life Gallery, there are LIVE sharks and stingrays can be found in the tank. There are also a number of other live animals in this section, including pythons, snakes, scorpions, and lizards - so if you love the creepy crawlies, you might just want to head here!
Kids can learn all about the African Rainforest, as well as prehistoric mammals such as the giant ground sloth and saber-tooth tiger.
Make sure you don't miss the 35 foot long T-Rex animatronic - that actually lowers it's head and roars at them! ROAR! Can you imagine what it would have been like to actually live in the age of the dinosaurs? Pretty scary we imagine!
Kids can also explore which dinosaurs would have been around in Nevada during this historic time.
The Las Vegas Natural History Museum is a great way to get out of the Nevada heat, and spend a day with dinosaurs, live animals, Ancient Egyptians and so much more!

There was a lot of neat things to look at and some really cool information about history. The down side is that it looks a bit dated and run down. Some if the exhibits I think are really old and the taxidermy shows it. I think it would be great with kids just not as neat for grownups. Still check it out.

A nice museum with quite a number of exhibits, but I had actually expected more from vegas and less generic natural history. There were lots and lots of animal statues, some dinosaurs, and an Egyptian section, which were all interesting enough, but a bit bland. There wasnt anything wrong with the museum per se, but it was simply boring and lacking.

While staying in Vegas for about a week, I got burned-out of looking at the insanity around where I was staying on the strip. This museum isn't the Smithsonian and the building isn't the most up-to-date looking facility, but I learned some things that I didn't know before I came in. If you cared to read, then you could spend a couple hours in here. Also, there is a park next door and other museums in very close proximity to make your taxi ride out this way more worthwhile.
