As an adult I found this place interesting but it is a much better attraction for children. My granddaughters really seemed to enjoy it.

My friend and I had visited Springs Preserve in 2013. It was very nice but nothing to recommend. . . AND THEN we revisited today because we had information on the "Butterfly Exhibit".

This place is spread over a large area with both indoor and outdoor displays. My kids really enjoyed the flash flood room and the digging pit outside. The restaurant was surprisingly good with really fresh tasting and fairly healthy options.

We visited ONLY the Gardens and The Butterfly Exhibit while at The Springs Preserve. We did not go in to any of the buildings. This review is just about these two places. The Gardens were in full bloom while we visited on Monday, March 23. The roses were also blooming. The Gardens are very nice. We liked the Demonstration Garden.... More

Went on a Sunday with ideal weather. Yes, it is a bit of many different attractions...that is key to its appeal. Will return again.

What a pleasant break from the craziness that is Vegas! Great museum, gift shop and restaurant, but most of all fabulous architecture. Gardens, museum, and even a few critters. I assume that this is where the locals come with their kids to explore and have a bit of fun. Highly recommended.

My husband & I attended a wedding at the Springs Preserve. It is a really beautiful place...wish we had time to actually see what there was to see. As for a place to have a wedding in the spring time it is perfect!

After seeing the other reviews that this was a great place, we were surprised at the spartan look of this place. The train ride is not a train but a cart pulled by a car with a train facade. The hiking trails are set amidst a small "park" that is surrounded by urban areas. The park was quite spartan, maybe... More

We were taken here by friends for only part of a day but wished we could have stayed longer. For $19 per adult, ($17 senior, $11 ages 5-7), this was truly a bargain. So much to see and do including, train rides, botanical gardens, nevada state museum, farmers market on thursdays, butterfly habitat, (seasonal), indoor or outdoor cafe all on... More

Great getaway from the strip. Took my 11 and 13 year old there. The exhibits are fun and educational. The movie was really interesting. The food in the cafe was incredible. The nature exchange is super cool (bring something to trade)! Even the gift shop was extraordinary. The grounds were so beautiful, perfect party or wedding setting. There is a... More
