Educational and fun for the kids

We enjoyed all the indoor activities. There's a lot to look at, explore and play. State museum is closed on Monday's and residents of Nevada receive entry discount.

We saw many species of great birds, rabbits a... More

ADA ready for your visit. They have a drop off area and wheelchairs for your use. Only visited the 2 air conditioned areas. Worth your time and well developed. May return in the future, butterfly area closed- to hot to include the open areas. We spent about 2 hours on just the 2 buildings. Plan for more to see more

Easily accessible from the freeway and adjacent to the large Meadows shopping mall - the Springs Preserve is a combination exhibit hall and outdoor gardens AND includes a very good Nevada State Museum which is for all ages while the Preserve itself is for the younger set. LOTS to see and do and there is a (pricey) restaurant on the... More

This place really has something for everyone. The live animals and science type crafts and exhibits are excellent. I would suggest wearing good shoes and packing accordingly for the elements. Some of the exhibits are outside and there are some hills and stairs. Look for discounts and special events. Some times they have some really neat special events throughout the... More

Who would have known that this place exist minutes away from the Strip. If you love gardens and need a break from the crowds, well this is a haven nearby. Bring comfortable walking shoes, sunhat, and sunglasses to stroll through the many pathways around this large facility.

In our group we had two seniors, an eleven-year old and two adults. The regular tickets are $18.95 each. Our AAA discount worked out the best for us. It was very hot and many of the exhibits, such as the Butterfly Garden and ther Nevada State Museum, were "closed for the season." I was disappointed we hadn't been told this... More

This is a gorgeous piece of nature in the middle of a city made cement, glass and steel. Lovely grounds with native plants. Several types of birds were stopping by. We saw luzards too. The Springs is non profit, so your donation is tax deductible. Get away from the crowds and get back to nature here. I recommend.

An oasis in the heart of Vegas. Provided a nice break from the noise and the crowds of the city. The butterfly exhibit was lovely and we enjoyed walking through the beautiful gardens. The lunch was pretty good. Admissions is a little pricey, but it's tax deductible as non-profit contribution.

This is a really neat place with lots of outdoor activities that provides a great introduction to the Mojave Desert. It's paired with the Nevada State Museum, so not only can you learn about the desert and see the plants that grow, you can also learn a lot about the state and the city of Las Vegas. It's really well-oriented... More
