Admission costs are extremely low. Go in the morning and enjoy 1 to 2 hours of walking around and looking at what life was like in early Las Vegas/Nevada. The housing exhibits are well done and the collection(s) are well thought out.

Located just off Boulder Highway on Museum Drive, this is a great place to come if you're looking for something different to do for a morning. Pay your $2 entrance fee($1 for seniors) in the visitor centre and then tour the inside displays showing artifacts...More

At first, visitors to Las Vegas might be reluctant to drive 15 miles to suburban Henderson to experience what the Clark County Heritage Museum has to offer. Who is interested in the history of the southernmost county in Nevada? Well, give it a thought. The...More

They created a city block, of full size homes, dated back in the 1950s, when Las Vegas was just starting to boom. Which is really cool to see.

This museum is a hidden gem. It is worth the drive! I enjoyed it much more than the Springs Preserve 1905 Boomtown. It has valuable bits of history at a great price! The staff are super friendly and helpful.

I went here on a field trip with my daughters class. Lots of things to explore and interest children. We also had a photo shoot here, lots of old buildings and machinery for interesting photos.

We were so impressed with this museum, interesting history of the area with vintage outbuildings, homes, stores and old equipment. Plan on spending a couple of hours. Only $2 for adults, $1 for seniors

It's sort of in the middle of no where. Perhaps a tour bus that goes to the M candy store might stop there. I'd just call the museum and ask.
