Natural History Museum to offer free admission Saturday

It’s a “December to Remember,” in more ways than one, on Saturday at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, 900 Las Vegas Blvd. North.

One of the most memorable elements may be the admission charge: no charge at all.

Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is providing the dough to pay for Saturday’s free admissions to the downtown museum from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The free-admission day coincides with the museum’s ninth annual “December to Remember” celebration, which includes a visit from Santa (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.), along with displays featuring December cultural traditions observed around the world.

Also on Saturday’s schedule: the science behind the winter solstice, shark feeding at the museum’s marine life display and a chance to get up close with live animals during the museum’s regular “Critter Connection.”

Other “December to Remember” activities — which continue past December and through Jan. 3 — range from painting and snowflake-making to a snowman slam.

The free museum admission offer is for Saturday only, but Grimaldi’s patrons who bring their receipt to the museum may receive two-for-one admissions through Dec. 30.

For more information, call 702-384-3466 or visit www.lvnhm.org.
