The Las Vegas Natural History Museum is soaring to new heights as we celebrate 31 years of inspiring and educating the community.

The 2022 Dinosaur Ball will be held Oct. 1 at the Museum and feature food and beverage, fun, music, a silent auction and “fun-raising” in support of the Museum’s educational programs.

Honored during the event will be two families who generously donated exhibit-quality personal collections to the Museum – the Estate of Carl Ross and the Ross family, and the late Peter Carollo and the Carollo family. Mr. Ross’ and Mr. Carollo’s legacies will be remembered for years to come in multiple exhibits throughout the Museum.

Join our mission “to inspire a better understanding and appreciation of the natural world, the sciences, and ourselves through educational exhibits, programming, and research.”
