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.

Great deal for seniors (55+), $1 admission! Otherwise, $2 for adults. There is a "smallish" indoor exhibit building, but an expansive outdoor exhibit area including period buildings (air-conditioned), railroad cars and machinery, as well as a geology tour. The main building closes at 4:30, but they start locking up the outside exhibit buildings around 4:00pm. Probably best to visit earlier... More

The museum gives a great picture of Nevada history with both indoor and outdoor exhibits. There is something for all ages - from houses from different eras to plants of the desert on an outdoor trail. A trip through the museum can easily be done in under 2 hours. And perhaps the best part is the admission cost -$2.00 for... More

Have you ever wondered what the "olden times" were like? Here you can walk around and see relics of life in the past. There is a street of period houses which are especially sweetly decorated in the era depicted by each house. The indoors part of the museum contains exhibits of the Las Vegas Valleys past.

This museum is very interesting for all ages. We visited in July so our visit was probably shorter than if it was cooler. Both teenagers found areas that interested them. We will definitely visit again.

Mark, complete with white straw hat, red shirt and slacks is there and he agreed to meet with us. Had a good chat. He stumped us on stuff about OUR home town! The displays inside and outside of the museum are worth seeing. Mark is extremely friendly, down to Earth and accommodating. Absolutely worth the visit!

Absolutely charming. We were on a multi day vacation from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon. On this leg of our journey we had a rainy cloudy unusually cool day in Vegas so we decided to get out of the casino & see some sights. This place is a gem. My husband does not generally enjoy the museum/historical type of sights... More

This museum is a hidden gem that is extremely affordable, never been crowded while we were there, and has a lot of interesting history to explore. It's not fancy, but it's worth a visit.

Great place to visit if u want to learn about the history of the Las Vegas area. Plan to spend 2 hrs or more learning about the area. Excellent place to go to get away from the gambling scene for a while. EZ to drive to.
