For the extremely low admission price of $2 you can step back in time and walk around an avenue of homes each one depicting a different era in modern american history! They say a picture tells a thousand stories how very true! We had a wonderful time and would thoroughly recommend this museum.

This museum is a full size town replica and has always been one of my favorite places in the valley. The history of the valley along with the street of homes preserved as they were and the addition of the historic chapel are fantastic. The trains and train station makes for a full "small town" replica. There is always the... More

Nice displays. Very inexpensive to visit. Was disappointed by the Mojave desert section of the museum. Would have liked to had more of the history of the county or of the state.

This place is huge and history buffs will have a great time. From Native American to railroads to nature trails this 30 acre site has it all. Very inexpensive as well.

What caught our eye was the locomotive we spotted as we drove by on our way to Hoover Dam. We looked up the museum's website to see if they were open and then noticed the $2 admission. We figured it must not be much of a place, but since my wife and I are train geeks we figured that alone... More

There is an entire potted history of Clark County here. Desert hiking trails. I thought the best part were the houses that have been refurbished in different decades in a little neighborhood. Very inexpensive and an easy drive from Vegas.

A great place to wander through and see what the streets and homes were like decades ago in the Henderson, Boulder City, and Clark County area. Refurbished, refinished, and delightful to see the small workers homes, or a middle class residence. Plus see the old Boulder City railroad depot.

As a history buff, I thoroughly enjoyed this display of local history. I enjoyed learning about the growth of Las Vegas and the chronological history of the casinos. The outdoor tour of actual early last century homes and other buildings made up to form a mini neighborhood was a nice addition. My husband and I spent well over two hours... More

Both indoor and outdoor exhibits are excellent. We spent 1/2 a day here and could easily go back for more!

This is probably one of the best Museums I have been to in a long time. $1 for seniors to get in. Well laid out flow of the out buildings that are well maintained and seasonally specific. It basically cover everything in area history in a well planned out small space. Well done for all ages!
