Out side of the main museum they had a village with historic homes and other buildings. The main museum was well laid out with a chronological view of Nevada history. Not as much fun for children.

Everything was very special, unique pictures and items. Can't beat the price $2. Do not worry about crowds nobody was there on a recent visit

I liked the variety of buildings through the ages and interactive displays. Can be a little hot at this time of year as most displays are outdoors. Very well kept and a low cost visit.

This was recommended by other campers in our RV Park and so we went. Were so glad we did. This is living history. Would be a great spot for families - the classic when I was young comes alive.

This was a neat experience for the family. A street of heritage houses in Las Vegas, putting the every day in view, with some neat mining exhibits as well. Well worth the price of admission.

My wife and I had a lot of fun visiting the museum, the exhibits were very well put together. The homes were for us the high light of the self guided tour.

This museum is almost hidden out in the south east corner of Henderson. It is just off of Hwy95 on Boulder Highway between Horizon Drive and Wagonwheel. There is an inside portion to the museum and an outdoor area. The inside section has all kinds of relics from the early days of Clark County and Las Vegas / Boulder City.... More

There were parts that were a bit cheesy and parts that were a bit run down, but there was a lot of good, interesting, well-put-together exhibits at the Museum. Heritage St., with its historic houses, was particularly good.

Wow! This place is an incredible value! $2 for an adult? This place is worth 5 times that! The main museum exibit is small but some interesting items (especialy liked the gambeling devices). But the outside exibits aresomething else. The Boulder City homes were a real jump back in time. If you are anywhere near here you must stop!
