The museum has homes from the last century that were saved from demolition, Moved here and if needed restored to their original design. We were here for Christmas festivities with decorations and trees that took you back in time. This is a wonderful interactive museum that takes you back in time allowing you a chance to experience the lives of... More

Nevada's best kept secret! So happy we came across a brochure for this place. The admission is so small - seniors are $1 each! Well laid out and so many interesting things to see. Be sure to look them up on the web before you come to get a good idea of the time span this museum covers. It was... More

I lived in Vegas for a couple of years but recently moved back to Chicago. When my family went out to visit, I made sure we came here. I love the little houses that have been set up like time capsules! It really is like a flashback to old Vegas. I highly recommend it. It is outside, so maybe pick... More

Loved walking around the time period houses as well as seeing the well kept displays inside the main building. If you like history you will enjoy this museum.

Went here for the first time with my 3 yr old grandson. He loved climbing on the train, wagons and running from building to building and looking at the old cars. Want to visit again soon.

How this museum charges only $2 to enter is beyond me! This place is a bargain. You can tour a small museum to get your Clark County history, and then head outside for a wonderful tour of homes, a "ghost town" and a nature trail. For me, this is one of the best house tours I've ever been on because... More

For a very small entrance fee you get several hours of entertainment. If my memory serves me correctly it is only a couple of dollars to enter. Inside the museum building there are some very interesting and unique items on display covering the history of the area. Then when you go outside, you have the nature walk. Old railway buildings...

Best $2 spent in Vegas. Cute little village full of old original old houses that were actually moved here. They stage them and have stories in each telling you all about where they came from. A great visit
