the one building with the flash flood and small animal exhibit was somewhat interesting. The train ride around the park was a waste of time. There was nothing of interest to see along it and a lot of garbage along the side of interstate. We did not get out to the turtle habitat as it seemed to far to walk... More

We have had a membership to the Springs Preserve since it opened. It never gets old! The gardens are beautiful during any season. They have wonderful traveling exhibits as well as the ones that are permanent. Lunch at the Divine Cafe overlooking the gardens is amazing. Wandering through the Springs is a lovely way to spend the day

We loved this, as did our 6 year old daughter. Great exhibits. Great to walk around. Didn't have time to do the trails. Restaurant was the best food we had in a long weekend in Vegas. Close to downtown and the strip.

My friend and I came to Springs Preserve to see the traveling exhibit SHIPWRECK! PIRATES AND TREASURE EXHIBIT at Origen Museum. The Volunteer Guides at this Museum were friendly and knowledgeable. We were guided to an 8 minute overall introduction and background of why this preserve was so important to the founding of Las Vegas. We both agreed that the... More

This is a great attraction while visiting Las Vegas. Great way to get away from the tables and see how Las Vegas really started out! There is a museum and lots of outdoor walking areas to see beautiful plants and the old springs area where Las Vegas began. They even have a train ride that takes you all around the... More

Maybe we went on the wrong day but this place wasn't anything special. We enjoyed the flash flood room and the tiny Eco house they had, but this place isn't anything to write home about. Maybe it was because we went in the middle of the week and no special events were being held at the time. It would be... More

There is always something to do here. In addition to the usual attractions they have monthly evening events like Haloween night.

We went because we could get in for free on the Bank of America museum program (free first weekend every month). It's easy to get to and park. There were not too many people when we went one Sunday morning. Not a big facility but we enjoyed seeing the UofN energy efficient home and the cacti. My husband saw the... More
