Four of us traveling together and each got a pick of one thing to do while visiting Las Vegas. This was mine and I'm so glad the other 3 didn't mind. Definitely off the beaten tourist path but worth ten times the admission charge. We met the Administrator, Mark Hall-Patton, and asked why the admission was so low. He told... More

Two couples a couple of hours and lots of fun. That's a great way to say how our visit was. Coming from the Detroit area we have Greenfield Village, lots of old and famous people's homes. Clark County Heritage Museum can definitely stand tall, the houses they have from different times are well done and you can take your time... More

Called in on way back from Hoover dam, more so to try and see the beard of knowledge !! Look it's 2 dollars...a bargain. The inside is a bit dry but the outside is worth a look just for the eerie feel, like a set from twilight zone.

For $2 entrance fee, you cannot go wrong. Museum, with houses in the 20.30.40.50, trailer, Had some old ghost town structures and railroad cars and a nature trail. We found it interesting and we still have some items in our house, yikes. It is in Henderson so a little out of your way, but we stayed at the Green Valley... More

From seeing Mark, beard of knowledge, to the terrific outside village recreation, this place is the best bargain in Vegas. Lots to see inside as well.

The indoor portion of this museum is kind of "meh" but the outdoor portion is awesome! Going into the old homes is so much fun...I love vintage stuff anyway, and this was just incredible. The Gaumond house was our favorite as we got this incredible twilight zone / ghost vibe in there. We also loved seeing the Candlelight Wedding Chapel... More

As a fan of Pawn Stars I was hoping to see Mark, the beard of knowledge . There was a customary cut out figure by the entrance similar to that of Rick in the pawn stars shop. The museum was a museum , nothing special , a little bit of interest in relation to the some history of Vegas .... More

Great themes from Building of the dam and Boulder City. Good relics of homes and accessories brings back memories for those born in the 30's -50's. Good set up and easy to walk and go thru all buildings. We take guests there and they enjoyed.
