For a couple of bucks you can spend a couple of hours of checking out the history of the area. They have a street exhibit of what live was like from the 20' to the 70's. Actual furniture and clothes from the era.

Very informative and interesting to say the least. The museum contains many displays about the development of the area, from early settlers to early slot machines. It's alays neat to find out where certain names around town came from. The real treat were the authentic homes on site which depict life in the earlier years. Great detail and one home... More

I loved walking through the old restored houses and train cars on the property. The houses have the old furniture and appliances from different 1900 decades

I have lived in Henderson for over 23 years and JUST found out about this place last year. I have taken several people there and been there once by myself to take photos. It is wonderful. A trip back in time. It's WAY cheap, $2 for adults, $1 for seniors, and I believe $1 for children under 18. I plan... More

Since moving in to the area in November, we wanted to know more about the area and it's history. The museum is well done and very informative. Everything was well done and spaced out. Be prepared for a lot of walking. If you want to know about the history of Las Vegas, go see this museum.

Knowing that the curator of the Clark County Heritage Museum, Mark Hall-Patton, has appeared numerous times on the ubiquitous Pawn Stars series as an expert on a diverse number of topics, I wanted to see the museum. My wife and I were intrigued by the layout of the main interpretative centre which uses diorama displays, artifacts and memorabilia from the... More

Definitely loved this museum. The exhibits are fascinating and displayed with imagination. The ghost town, the wedding chapel and the trains are a must see. Hands down the best $2, I've spent in a long time.
