In prior articles we have reviewed the Atomic Testing Museum, Mob Museum, and Neon Museum plus some other art venues. All of these are educational and beneficial diversions from the Strip or Downtown.

Yes, Las Vegas is mostly known for the food, shows, majestic hotels, and gambling, but there is much more to this city.  So, today, we want to throw the spotlight on the Las Vegas Natural History Museum that is celebrating its 25th year. The museum is located just a few long blocks north of Fremont Street at 900 Las Vegas Blvd.

What does this museum offer? Quite a lot, and quite a variety of exhibits, something for kids and adults alike. Here is a short list of some of the exhibits currently on display:

Dinosaur Mummy CSI: Cretaceous Science Investigation

Engelstad Family Prehistoric Life Gallery

Treasures of Egypt

International Wildlife Gallery

Las Vegas Founders’ African Galleries

Visit the museum’s webpage and read about each of these exhibits:  http://www.lvnhm.org/exhibits

This video will give you a quick introductory tour of the museum.
