category : Museums
Las Vegas Natural History Museum Marine life, Nevada's wildlife, Africa Savannah/Africa rain forest room and animated dinosaurs are featured, plus children's hands-on room.

At the Prehistoric Life Gallery, children of all ages are struck with a sense of awe as they step past the 35-foot long Tyrannosaurus Rex that lowers its head and roars at them! A Triceratops, ankylosaur, and a ferocious raptor give a further glimpse into the past. Also represented is the ichthyosaur, a gigantic marine reptile that swam in the waters of Nevada during the time of the dinosaurs.

The African Savanna exhibit presents the breathtaking beauty of the Serengeti, featuring a peaceful watering hole scene on one side and predator-prey relationships on the other. The African Rainforest exhibit features the diverse life found in an African jungle. With the push of a button, visitors can see and learn about the animals hidden in the trees and thick brush, and can experience a thunderstorm with rain and lightning.

The "Out of Africa" exhibit features recreations of three extinct African primates: Australopithecus afarensis, Homo habilis, and Homo erectus. This exhibit is the only one of its kind in the state of Nevada, offering a unique educational experience to better understand prehistoric primates.

The International Wildlife Gallery showcases world-class taxidermy specimens from North America, South America, the Middle East, and Africa. Explore family groups like bears, sheep, deer, dog, cats, and antelope.

Visitors will get a feeling of being underwater in the Marine Life Gallery, painted in cool blue colors to resemble the ocean floor. Live sharks, stingrays, and eels occupy a 3,000-gallon tank while other colorful and fascinating creatures from the deep occupy additional jewel tanks. Life-size recreations of various species of sharks and fish hang from the ceilings and walls.
