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

For $2 a person, you can't beat it. This place is small, but shows the diverse history of Las Vegas. Well worth the visit if you're close by!

What do you do in Las Vegas when it's 112 degrees outside with a 7 year old and an 8 month old infant? You make an early morning trip to Hoover Dam to show your grandsons the magnificent engineering feat of the dam itself and the newly erected bridge over the river. After that you head to the Clark County... More

Neat place to stop by. We stopped on our way back from Hoover Dam, and were interested to see the museum. For the $2 admission, there is a lot to see. Half of the tour is outside, so be prepared when it I hot. A lot of local history ad displays.

We went on a blistering hot day. Be prepared to spend about half of your time outside, so make sure you bring water. There is a water fountain by the restrooms, so you can fill up your water bottle if needed. They did a nice job recreating a few of the exhibits, as well as moving real houses and artifacts... More

After watching Pawn Stars on the TV where they bring in an expert every so often from the above museum, I always wanted to visit. This time we managed to get there, it's out on the Boulder Highway about 15 minutes from the strip. Just sat there at the side of the street, easy to miss but it is signposted... More

For just a few bucks folks can "step back in time" to the roots of Las Vegas history. Both the displays and restored homes and businesses transport us to times not-so-long-ago better than any web site, TV show, or movie.
