To inspire, through educational exhibits and programs, a better understanding and appreciation of the natural world, the sciences, and ourselves.
The Las Vegas Natural History Museum has been a Smithsonian Affiliate since 2002. The mission of the Smithsonian Affiliations is to share resources with Americans in their own communities by developing collaborative partnerships with museums, cultural and educational organizations. Together with the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, this affiliation brings the Smithsonian, in all of its breadth and scope, to Las Vegas and creates lasting experiences that broaden perspectives on science, history, world cultures and art.
The American Alliance of Museum is the National organization that supports museums through advocacy and excellence. In 2013, the Museum became accredited with the American Alliance of Museums, a designation awarded to only 6% of Museum’s across the Nation. Accreditation demonstrates the Museum’s commitment to best practices in museum operations, educations, collections, and visitor services.
