This is the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, whose driveway we drove into, by mistake, while looking for the Lied Discovery Center. They are across each other on Las Vegas Boulevard North.
The museum has different sections but the most interesting part for the kids was a recreation of King Tut's tomb. They told me they knew all about Egyptian tombs and embalming because of the book, Beyond the Grave, Book 4 of the 39 Clues series.
Both G and C love to read and the 39 Clues is one of their favorite series (there are 11 books).
Even if it's a small museum, there's still lots to see and fascinating things to learn about. We spent about 3 hours here.
After going through all the three floors and having a vendo-chip snack in between, we went back again to King Tut's room and went through all the displays all over again.
Our last stop was the Young Scientist Center, beside the dinosaur display, where you could play with the displays.
G took notes and wrote down her impressions of everything she saw. C liked the more interactive displays.
I had no idea this place was here, so I was happy to have discovered it by mistake.
