Really enjoyed the Heritage Museum with hubby, sister & brother-in-law. Walked through a historic town viewing homes, furnishings, barn and railroad car. Featured many artifacts of days gone by. A must see if you are in the area. We only allowed 2 hours for our visit. Wished we would have planned a bit longer.

Really enjoyed our visit to the Clark County Museum. Did not see the director Mark Hall-Patton, the Pawn Stars history expert; but the life size cardboard cut-out made for a great picture. We spent a couple hours there for just $2!! The street with old furnished homes moved there were pages out of Vegas non-mob, non-gambling history. The train cars,... More

We visited this museum as part of a tour and it was a wonderful way of going back into history. They have a museum building that starts the tour and then you can go outside and visit a train depot and look inside the train plus they had many houses and print shops from the early 1900s plus a nature...

This is a place that you can take the kids and yourself to learn how it was for the first settlers of this area. You can tour the actual houses, view the era of style in furniture and clothes. Its small enough and cheap enough to put this on your list of things to do off the strip.

On our recent visit to Las Vegas, my husband & I wanted to visit the Clark County Museum. This museum is small enough where you can see everything in about 2 hours. It contained a little bit of everything, Native American culture, gambling and mining. Outside there is a 1950's type Americana street with houses you can go in. These... More

a very interesting look into Las Vegas' past. The housing and how people lived. And best of all it only cost $2.00 to get in.

Hard to believe that the entrance fee is only $2 to such an interesting museum. The Curator's Exhibit is great - loved her captions to the exhibits. The lady must have a fabulous sense of humour. If you are lucky you might also get to meet the Museum Administrator - the guy who wears a boater and appears on the... More

Best to visit in the cooler months. Bring good walking shoes and drinking water to carry when you walk the area.

We were here on a very quiet day mid week, but really enjoyed our visit. There is a "street" of historical homes, well preserved for visitors to go through and get a feeling about the old times. They have moved the chapel with the record in number of weddings in one day from Las Vegas to the museum, as well... More
