This museum is almost hidden out in the south east corner of Henderson. It is just off of Hwy95 on Boulder Highway between Horizon Drive and Wagonwheel. There is an inside portion to the museum and an outdoor area. The inside section has all kinds of relics from the early days of Clark County and Las Vegas / Boulder City.... More

There were parts that were a bit cheesy and parts that were a bit run down, but there was a lot of good, interesting, well-put-together exhibits at the Museum. Heritage St., with its historic houses, was particularly good.

Wow! This place is an incredible value! $2 for an adult? This place is worth 5 times that! The main museum exibit is small but some interesting items (especialy liked the gambeling devices). But the outside exibits aresomething else. The Boulder City homes were a real jump back in time. If you are anywhere near here you must stop!

This was a much larger museum then I expected for the price. There is an inside museum which has displays on the history of the area, famous locals and mining. There are two outdoor areas with gravel trails to follow along. One is a "ghost town" which has some buildings and equipment from bygone days. Signage explains what it is... More

Loads to see in this huge museum (it covers 30 acres), including a ghost town which you can wander around! There is also a collection of restored historic buildings and a collection of railroad cars. And, it costs only $2 entry fee!

Stopped here on a whim, and spent several hours. They have very well done complete residential replicas from several decades, each with an appropriate vintage car in the driveway. Also a mining equipment display and lots of other stuff. We have recommended this to friends.

Not far from Las Vegas to travel but a very different experience. Entrance price is only $2 - a bargain

The Clark County Musuem offers some interesting history regarding the Las Vegas Valley. The highlight of the museum are the various restored houses you can visit from different eras. The museum is outdoors, so beware of the heat in summer. This is not a "must visit" but is a good stop for history lovers.

Got handed a leaflet whist in Vegas and decided to visit - it was so worthwhile the trip. Could not believe the entrance fee was only $1 !!! The layout of the museum was excellent with such an array of things to see both inside and outside - taking you back in time. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.... More
