AAA Editor Notes
Las Vegas Natural History Museum, 900 Las Vegas Blvd. N., features walk-through dioramas representing animals in their natural habitats. The museum displays marine life and species from around the world. A mummified Cretaceous-era dinosaur is on display, as are animated dinosaurs and exhibits about the African savanna and rain forest. Additional highlights include mounted sharks, a 3,000-gallon shark and stingray tank, video presentations, plants and animals indigenous to Nevada, and hands-on displays.
“Treasures of Egypt” moved to the museum from the Luxor Hotel and Casino. The pieces in this collection of Egyptian antiquities are all replicas, but the quality is uniformly outstanding.
Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
