SOLD OUT Science is Everywhere at the Museum!

April 28, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


When cooking, crafting, playing, or exploring, science is all around us. Join us for Science is Everywhere at the Nevada State Museum. The Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas has thousands of specimens in its collections. They range from beautiful gems and bizarre bugs, to ancient artifacts from indigenous peoples and titanic fossil bones. Hear directly from the museum’s curators and volunteers as they walk you through collections not on view to the public. Get updates on their latest research for Southern Nevada.

SOLD OUT behind-the-scenes tours of the Natural History collection. Tours last about 45 minutes and are limited to 20 people/tour. Tours are available at 10 am, 11 am, 2 pm, and 3 pm on Sunday, April 28. Rendezvous with your tour guide in the museum lobby 10 minutes before the tour start time.
