FREE MUSEUM ENTRANCE

GO TO THE NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM FREE WITH YOUR BANK OF AMERICA CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD THE FIRST FULL WEEKEND OF EACH MONTH

The founding of the Las Vegas Natural History Museum stemmed from the realization of a tremendous need in the community for a museum promoting an appreciation and understanding of global life forms, past and present.

In February 1989, a small group of concerned citizens requested that the Las Vegas City Council assist in finding a home for a pre-existing collection of wildlife and prehistoric exhibits. The City of Las Vegas purchased a building, located in the center of a proposed cultural corridor, to house the Museum. This building is leased for one dollar a year; however, the museum is responsible for renovations, upkeep, and operations.

With the assistance of local businesses and private individuals, the Las Vegas Natural History Museum opened its doors in July 1991, exhibiting a varied collection of wildlife and prehistoric exhibits on loan. Since then, the Museum has obtained its own multi-million dollar, world-class collection, and created an exciting and interactive learning experience.

From the desert to the ocean, from Nevada to Africa, from prehistoric times to the present, the Las Vegas Natural History Museum takes young and old alike on a learning adventure around the world.
