We maintain an annual membership and take our grandkids frequently. The exhibits change every few months so something new to explore often. There are special events like the Hawaiian dancing and culture on weekends. Our grandkids are 4 and 6 and they love the interactive exhibits and "town building". They also love seeing the animal exhibits. We usually take the... More

The Springs Preserve was a great way for our family to spend a day in Las Vegas. The staff encourages visitors to start the tour in the Origen Museum, which gives an overview of the origins of the springs which led to the start of Las Vegas, and includes plenty of hands-on science and history exhibits to enjoy. We strolled... More

We spent a wonderful three hours on the grounds and in the smaller museum. There is a nice trolley ride around the grounds, and the history museum was very well done for all ages. We were frustrated to not have enough time to visit the state museum which is on the grounds too, so we will be back on our... More

In vegas for a long weekend and yearning to enjoy the beautiful winter day (70 degrees and sunny) We enjoyed the exhibits here and lunch in the cafe. There are quite a few interesting things to see for the whole family. We did not have any kids with us, but many exhibits are geared to the younger set, but can... More

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
