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.

I had no idea this place existed until stumbling upon it on TripAdivser! I loved the fact that the entry price was ONLY $2/person. Yes, this is a small museum area but getting to check out the history that surrounded the Southwestern region of the US was awesome! My favorite part was being able to check out all of the... More

This museum is a hidden gem. There are some outdoor displays but we really liked the street and the houses there. You should go early as it got really hot in the afternoon. Didn't see Mark but we would have loved that as we have seen him on TV.

A wonderful review of founding fathers and how very hard they worked and lived. We are fortunate to have this available so that generations that follow can also see the hard work involved.

I can't believe the cost of admission for this museum is only $2 ($1 for those 55 and older). I feel they can easily charge $5 and use the money towards upkeep. Anyway. This is kind of a hidden secret because it's away from the Strip and tourists will need a car to get here, but it's so worth it!... More

Ive lived here my whole life and I learned things I did not know. The peple here know their stuff and will answer questions with facts and humor. The entire pace is real, no simulated artifacts or made up stories. Its just fun and you learn a lot!
