Marjorie Barrick Museum of Natural History
Marjorie Barrick Museum of Natural History Review
This museum, which was renovated in the spring of 2012, sits on the University of Nevada–Las Vegas campus. The museum has an excellent permanent collection of objects that predate the arrival of Europeans in the American Southwest and throughout Mexico. There's also a live reptile exhibit featuring regional lizards and snakes, plus a Xeriscape garden featuring drought-tolerant flora from the four corners of the Earth. For kids, the best experience is the new "archaeology dig" in the museum lobby, where youngsters can jump into a (glorified) sandbox and excavate for cultural treasures.
