From the desert to the ocean, from Nevada to Africa, from prehistoric times to the present, The Las Vegas Natural History Museum’s exciting and interactive exhibits take young and old alike on an around-the-world learning adventure. Our CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas staff loves to take our kids and grandkids to the #NaturalHistoryMuseum. We learn something new every time.
A Sampling of Exhibits
Treasures of Egypt – Visit the realistic entrance to Tut’s tomb where you can view artifact recreations of best-known pieces including the Golden Throne, chariots, the Golden Shrine and outer sarcophagus. These replicas are one of only two sets that were authorized by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities. You can also explore an Egyptian mummy by using state-of-the-art technology that allows the user to “scan” a mummy replica in real time and view actual medical imaging taken of a real mummy.
Engelstad Family Prehistoric Life Gallery – Experience a 35-foot long Tyrannosaurus rex that lowers its head and roars at visitors! You’ll also see the Ichthyosaur, a gigantic marine reptile that swam in the waters of Nevada during the time of the dinosaurs.
Dinosaur Mummy CSI: Cretaceous Science Investigation – This one of a kind exhibit showcases the science and technology used to unlock the secrets of the world’s best preserved dinosaur in the flesh, the Dinosaur Mummy, Leonardo! This plant eater from the late Cretaceous period was naturally mummified before it was turned into a 23 foot long fossil. It provides researchers with an extremely rare glimpse of skin texture, muscles, internal organs and the remnants of the dinosaur’s last meal.
Marine Life Gallery – Visitors are submerged in the special effects of this ocean experience. Live sharks and stingrays can be viewed in a 3,000-gallon tank. Other colorful and fascinating sea creatures occupy additional jewel tanks. Lifesize recreations of various species of sharks and fish hang from the ceilings and walls.
