Creating the Future Together

The Las Vegas Natural History Museum began in 1989 (opening to the public in 1991) with a small group of citizens who knew the community would benefit from the educational resources it could provide. After very humble beginnings, this private non-profit museum is now a Smithsonian Affiliate, accredited with the American Alliance of Museums, and is a state and federal collections repository for hundreds of thousands of paleontological and archaeological materials collected on both public lands and from the private sector.
