Las Vegas Natural History Museum
The past is alive in this museum. You'll find everything from fossils to an animated 35-foot (10.6-meter) Tyrannosaurus Rex right out of the time when dinosaurs ruled the earth. As for more modern monsters, there is a 3,000-gallon (11,356-liter) aquarium with sharks that seem to be waiting for dinner. The learning process is enhanced with multimedia and hands-on displays, as well as live and mounted animals. One of the most popular displays contains live insects, including giant cockroaches.
My 2-year old loves the Natural History Museum. His favorite thing is the Marine Room -- he asks to "go see fishies" at least once a week. And, with the affordability of a family membership, it's easy for me to accommodate him!
