On Boulder Hwy. just on south side of Henderson, is a museum but not like one thinks of a museum. Yes, there is a smallish timeline display of artifacts inside that is worth seeing, but outside is where there is actually a "lane" or small street of homes. Each is relocated there from local sites and decorated to a past... More

Inside exhibits well displayed. Outside buildings fun to go through. Interesting to learn the history of southern Nevada. A lot of work and love went into the presentation of that history. Well worth the very simple drive to Boulder Hwy. Only $2 for adults $1 for seniors and children

The museum main building is kind of a dodge oodge of indian, mining and las vegas gambling history but heritage village is one of a kind. It is a real residential street with relocated homes dating from 1920s to 1940s. Each has original period furnishings and all rooms are open to view. It is hard to describe but each home... More

Did not know that this was a good museum. Heard about it from TV show "Pawn Stars" but no knowledge of quality, until a friend returned from Las Vegas and recommended it. Interior exhibits are mainly about history of gambling in the area, but the real gem is the outside area with a buildings along a historic street. That alone... More

The museum has a wide range of historic displays. Most memorable to me were the homes from different time periods in Clark County. Was a great way to spend an afternoon after many casinos.

If you have not yet been to the Clark County Heritage Museum, I encourage you to visit. My grandchildren enjoyed seeing the old houses with their antique furnishings as much as I did. The print shop, and barn were also fun. It's not very big, but what is there makes the trip worthwhile. Also, it's very affordable: only $1 for... More

A nice change from walking the strip. Admission $! for seniors and kids $2 for adults. This is a very good museum. Start with the indoor museum which has all kinds of displays about the Native Americans, Pioneers, Geology, Mining and the development of Las Vegas. A lot of hands on items that say "Please Touch" The old photos and... More
