Great place to visit

Although it was 115 degrees when we visited, we throughly enjoyed our visit. Lots to see both indoors and out! Well worth the visit.

After watching Pawn Stars for years I decided to drag the family to the museum on our trip to Vegas. No we didn't see Mark and to tell you the truth I was disappointed on how small the place was. It was cheap to get in though. Well it's not as bad as the ripoff down the street Lake Mead.e

inside you can view the history from prehistoric times to present Las Vegas. And outside it is a nice walk through Ghost town and mining trail, there are train cars to see and most of all - the tree shaded 20th century Heritage Street with different homes where you can go inside and see the different styles of living from...

This was by far the favorite part of my trip to Vegas! I loved walking through the old homes decorated with period items. The music playing made everything come alive and made you feel that you walked back in time. It is worth the drive from Vegas and is very inexpensive to visit. I loved every minute of it and...

Enjoyed the museum on a free day. Nice to learn a little about the area. It gets really hot and sometimes the trail portion is closed. Very inexpensive way to spend a few hours!

Lots of good attractions, very well kept to walk around to see life in days gone by. Nice indoor exhibits too with a small gift shop, staffed by a very helpful and informative lady. It cost us $1 each for entry - amazing value

This is an unusual means of displaying a piece of history, with buildings from an era re-located to a purpose built street within the museum grounds. It contains houses with furnishings and set-up mannequins portraying people from the era in their environment. We're from Australia and are not directly related to this history, but the way this is laid out... More

It's a good place to show visitors the local history.Many of the exhibits are outside, so it's best to go when the weather cooperates.
