“Really well done...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

What a great way to spend an afternoon. The interior presents a great history of the evolution of The Strip, while the exterior has several examples of restored Las Vegas residences. If you are interested in historic/period houses and furnishings, you have to visit. And as a bonus, there are lots of bunnies running around the property. Young children probably would not fully enjoy the historical aspect, but there are some trains and nature trails they may enjoy.

“Interesting "slice of life"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Off the beaten path, The CC Heritage Museum is an enjoyable packaged history of the Las Vegas area. The main building has information, pictures, and keepsakes of yesteryear. Even better, though, is a "street" of older houses and businesses from days gone by. Accurately furnished, you get get an accurate idea of life in the Vegas Valley over the years. Worth the trip and pittance for admission.

“Nice place to spend a few hours...for only $2!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We loved this place. Nice stop to come and spend a few hours touring the grounds and homes. Cheapest two hours I have ever spent in Vegas. Good memorabilia from the many Casino's of old.

“unexpected oasis from the l930's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

we went to this museum after seeing the manager on pawn stars..not expecting much and not even as we pulled into the parking lot di we even think we would see such a wonderful village..this museum takes you thru old las vegas inn the 30's and 40's..there is a tree lined street with homes on both sides of the street each different in style and decor..you'll think grandmas maybe moms!
also on the street is a replica of a trailer park, printing company and so much more for all ages to enjoy. across "the street" is the train depot, a farm and large area for the young ones to let off steam..inside the museum, you are taken back to the old gambling days with a complete story on the imploding of various casinos and their where abouts now..yes the debris is being used thru out the area!
now the really surprising part..you get all of this for 2$ ( 1$ FOR seniors..please support this museum while you are in the las vegas area...you'll not regret it
