You can spend 2 hours here. Indoors there are small but tasteful collections from Nevada's past. Outside there are entire houses, railroad cars, even a locomotive (Baldwin switcher, 0-6-0), and lots of old and decaying farm and mining equipment. Also a garden, a big garden, full of desert plants and trees. Sharon, the only employee I saw - there must... More

We were travelling to Las Vegas when we saw the sign to the museum. Wanting to break our journey we followed the signs without much expectation , what a surprise we got. There was much to see and learn. The museum itself contained dioramas of life in the area in the past but outside there were heritage houses that one... More

A lot of this museum is outside. So make sure it isn't to hot of a day when you go. We made that mistake and couldn't even finish outside. And there was a lot to see. It was all so, so interesting. I hadn't been anywhere like this. It's less than 45 minutes from the strip and totally worth it.... More

Hubby and I visited Saturday April 4th. Home of the "Beard of Knowledge" from the Pawn Star fame. Lots of history of area, lots to see. We happened to go quite late in the afternoon. We arrived about 3, they close at 4:30, girl at desk told us to start outside, which we did. There is a whole block of... More

Affordable and informative-go see for yourself. Been twice; like it each time and learn new things. The curator has done a great job – I think his name is Mark and he is often on a television show as an expert.

We learned about the Clark Co. Museum from the TV show Mysteries of the Museum on the Smithsonian Channel, so we decided to go there when we visited Las Vegas. OMG! It was wonderful. The museum takes you on a time tour that spans decades. Inside the museum, there is a collection of memorabilia from days past and outside, you... More

Have never seen a museum as well done as this. Really enjoyed the street with the period homes. We will be back.

This place is really cool. By visiting, I got a glimpse of what it was like in "old" Vegas. There were great displays and I even got my picture taken with the Beard of Knowledge. :)

There is so much to absorb and learn here. The inside exhibits start with the Native American settlements in Southern Nevada. It continues with the coming of the settlers- the miners, the farmers and then the railroad. The community grows as Hover Dam is built, Nellis Air Base comes and then the gambling industry. The exhibit of Carol Lombard's plane... More
