This was a much larger museum then I expected for the price. There is an inside museum which has displays on the history of the area, famous locals and mining. There are two outdoor areas with gravel trails to follow along. One is a "ghost town" which has some buildings and equipment from bygone days. Signage explains what it is... More

Loads to see in this huge museum (it covers 30 acres), including a ghost town which you can wander around! There is also a collection of restored historic buildings and a collection of railroad cars. And, it costs only $2 entry fee!

Stopped here on a whim, and spent several hours. They have very well done complete residential replicas from several decades, each with an appropriate vintage car in the driveway. Also a mining equipment display and lots of other stuff. We have recommended this to friends.

Not far from Las Vegas to travel but a very different experience. Entrance price is only $2 - a bargain

The Clark County Musuem offers some interesting history regarding the Las Vegas Valley. The highlight of the museum are the various restored houses you can visit from different eras. The museum is outdoors, so beware of the heat in summer. This is not a "must visit" but is a good stop for history lovers.

Got handed a leaflet whist in Vegas and decided to visit - it was so worthwhile the trip. Could not believe the entrance fee was only $1 !!! The layout of the museum was excellent with such an array of things to see both inside and outside - taking you back in time. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.... More

I took my family here mainly because it doesn't cost a lot of money, I needed it for my Nevada history course and it was educational for the kids as well. It so happened on the day we visited they were having Native American tribal dancing and that was a great extra, the museum has special activities like that going... More

We loved the journey thru time in this museum. We enjoyed bumping into Mark Hall Patton again as well. I love the old houses with the original furniture-it's like stepping back in time. It was the highlight of our trip to Vegas.

The exhibits are exceptionally well done and include both inside and outside attractions. The old buildings on the site are especially interesting. There is a gift shop and loads of free parking. The staff is friendly and helpful. Allow for a three hour visit to see it all. Admission is only a couple dollars and half price for seniors. Exceptional... More

Learned a lot in this museum, saw some original items from the old Vegas days. Saw Mark, the expert that the Pawn Stars show brings in for appraisals. If you are staying in Vegas and have a way to get there I would advise you to go, worth the little trip to get there. Found it to be a very... More
