Las Vegas Natural History Museum Tours
Read MoreShow Less
The Las Vegas Natural History Museum is home to both live and preserved wildlife and historical exhibits from prehistoric times to present day. The museum offers a break from the Strip and a chance to learn about Egyptian mummification, the African savannah, fossils, and the science behind a well-preserved dinosaur.
Meant to be both educational and entertaining, the museum is perfect for those visiting Las Vegas with kids. Exhibits include prehistoric animal fossils, a dinosaur mummy, a marine life gallery with live sharks and stingray, and an international wildlife gallery where bears, big cats, and antelope are displayed. Don’t miss the Treasures of Egypt, focused on the discovery and artifacts in the tomb of Tutankhamun. Prebook your ticket for easy admission.

Great Family Experience
, Aug 2020
We had family from 3 to 77 and it was enjoyed by all. Each had a favorite part. The new dinosaur interactive was interesting. You could feed the dinosaur but never touched anything. Loved all the diarama s. The aquarium portion had a fun sand bin to depths and there were lots of tanks to look at and many sharks whales excetera hanging from the ceiling.
