Las Vegas Natural History Museum

OUR MISSION
The Las Vegas Natural History Museum strives to inspire through educational exhibits and programs, a better understanding and appreciation of the natural world, the sciences and ourselves.

OUR VISION
We envision a place where families can explore the earth’s wild places and past worlds, and where students can interact with scientists and experience scientific discovery, exploration and innovation right before their eyes. We endeavor to provide a place in which the past is not forgotten; stewards of the natural world can be cultivated; children living in Las Vegas can explore the stories of the place they live; and the processes of all sciences are explored

OUR GOALS
While remaining accessible to our community’s youth, the Museum strives to become a world-class educational resource.
