We enjoyed touring the outside exhibits before we spent some time on the inside. The houses displayed outside reminded us of our childhood and it was fun to recall special memories. The museum depicts many eras of the history of the Nevada. It was well worth the visit.

For a small museum, it had plenty of local history. We also enjoyed the historic houses on the property.

We made a quick day trip to the Clark County Heritage Museum on a trip to Vegas. We had seen it on Pawn Stars and decided to check it out in person. They have a lot of Las Vegas area history on display and also have a "street" with actual old historic homes and businesses that have been relocated to... More

Interesting historic houses that represent the life in the 1800s and 1900s. Occasionally the museum has exhibits dedicated to Las Vegas and its history.

What an unexpected treasure chest!! The curator Mark is chock full of tidbits about the Las Vegas area and all of it's history. Most of all, it tells of how the state began and all its glory besides being a tourism mecca for gamblers. A must go to for people with kids especially junior high or middle school age groups....

Really enjoyed our trip there. Lots to see and you can tell a lot of love and commitment went into making it. A labor of love shows. Several buildings were not only restored but furnished for the time period. They were air conditioned and had sound and narrative activated inside. Railroad engine and caboose. Mining artifacts. Vegas history. Little of... More

I LOVE this place! Fun for all ages, and excellent natural backdrops for family photography. While the actual museum is great, the grounds are just as great, if not COMPLETELY better! I love that they have restored homes from the original settlers are lined up to give a feeling how how Las Vegas felt when it was originally settled. This... More
