The Mission of The Las Vegas Natural History Museum

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.
