This is a surprisingly interesting complex. We took the tram ride around the property and learned that Las Vegas took off with advent of the railroad in 1905. We enjoyed the botanical garden, the eco-friendly house and the building devoted to environmental issues ( which we frankly expected to be boring.) The parrot show was endearing, half the fun being... More

We never realized what a gem this place was until we visited recently. The Nevada State Museum is well laid-out and informative. The botanical garden was excellent, with free tours from local Master Gardeners. Boomtown 1905, a Las Vegas streetscape from a century ago, opened the day we visited and hopefully they'll expand it further. Several trails and paths to... More

The Springs Preserve offered a great deal of promise, but sadly it wasn't all delivered. To begin with, if you're a LV resident, it costs $9-$10 to get in. If you're from out-of-town it costs $19-$20 to get in, and honestly, it just isn't worth it. The center is predominantly an educational center, and is perhaps designed from school groups... More

Second visit here. Tho I think of it as a desert plant park, the botanical side is fairly minor- it is truly an eco-park where one can be apprised how to live greener and how we can better deal with imagined insufferable 'climate change' in our daily doings. I know lots of you out there will love it!

The park is generally just ok but the Botanic Gardens are very good. The new Boomtown exhibit is also very good. The best thing however is that you can forget you are in Las Vegas and think you are in a normal city for a while. Walking trails are also recommended.

Comparatively speaking, the entrance fee to Springs Preserve is a bargain for Las Vegas! The amount of things to do here and interactive exhibits is astonishing. After several days of walking in Vegas, my feet gave out before the Springs Preserve ran out of things to look at! We will for sure be back to visit again the next time... More

Just a couple miles from the Strip is a protected and recreated survival project of Nevada. Recommend going to the Origen Museum orientation movie. View timetable to schedule events you’d like to attend. Special programs on weekend. Themed exhibits and special change throughout the year. Nevada State Museum on the premises, included with admission. I like to explore and read... More

Let me start by saying that my kids hated this! However, my wife & I enjoyed this little big oasis outside of the strip. It was strikingly refreshing! The garden display was my absolute favorite. I learned about 3 different ways to curate a mobile/urban garden. While you are walking through, make sure you keep an eye out for the... More

This lovely garden provides a brief respite and a pleasant breath of fresh air from the glittery concrete jungle known as The Strip. However, one can still see the skyline from this nice little oasis, most notably the Stratosphere. We saw a variety of small desert plants, plus some trees, many of which were identified by garden-type signs. The cafeteria... More

It's a nice oasis of nature in the middle of Las Vegas to be sure but it's really geared towards kids. The botanical gardens were nice but not overwhelming (maybe better in the spring of fall). Much of the rest bordered on cheesy. We both got tired of being constantly beaten over the head with messages about saving water and... More
