Nevada casino developer and wildlife enthusiast, Gary E. Primm, donated the prestigious museum-quality animal collection in November of 2015. Estimated at $650,000, according to Unmatched Appraisal Services, the rare, one-of-a-kind collection features more than 90 exotic and domestic species collected and curated over 20 years.

“We are very pleased that the Primm family saw the Las Vegas Natural History Museum as a fitting new home for their collection. We will make sure that our community enjoys and learns from this collection because that was the main wish from the family,” said Marilyn Gillespie, founder and Executive Director of the Las Vegas Natural History Museum.
