The Las Vegas Natural History Museum, located at 900 Las Vegas Boulevard in the downtown Las Vegas cultural corridor, reopened on June 1 with newly implemented social distancing procedures and plans to debut a new summer traveling exhibit for 2020.

The exhibit invites visitors to discover the dark, often unseen, ecosystems of the world like caves, the deep sea, the forest at night, and underneath the ground. Guests explore these mysteries via electronic, mechanical and computer interactives, immersive dioramas, and lifelike models.

A cultural icon for nearly 30 years, the museum has implemented new protocols for guests to safely and comfortably experience exhibits and educational programming, including a single-direction discovery path through the facility.

Additionally, the museum has introduced online ticketing, private group tours and early admission for those 65 and older and/or have a compromised immune system.

The Cox Charities Young Scientist Center, Classroom and Snack Room will remain temporarily closed.
