“Plenty to see.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Managed by the well-known Mark Hall, famous for his great knowledge from Pawn Stars TV, This place is a LONG way out. The price is right. There are more exhibits than can be absorbed. Friendly folks. Simply a trip back in time.Fortunately they have saved many treasures from Vegas and growth, like the little wedding chapel. If I were given $450 to drop in slots 'till it were gone, I would rather spend the same time here and pay the two bucks to get in.

“$1 Dollar - Are you kidding me! This is a big bite of Las Vegas history”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I grew up here in the Las Vegas Valley beginning in 1964 when the 'antique' homes now ensconced here (saved from the wrecking ball of 'improvement and progress') were the norm. Heck back then Sahara was still San Francisco Avenue (hence the Francisco Park area surrounding Valley High School and Tropicana was still Bond Road hence the Bond-aire bar waaaay out by the airport in the desert called McCarran field - entrance on Hwy 91 - now know as The STRIP! Back to the museum - a little bit of everything from the early days of Las Vegas, Henderson and all of Clark county and Nevada too. Inside exhibits even include a working 3 reeler penny slot machine that even the kids can 'feed' and enjoy. as well as ghost town relics and then there are THE HOUSES from the teens and 20s and 30s - even later - All decorated in period furniture down to the clothing hanging in the closets and the magazines
covering the atomic testing to our showgirls! The kids LOVED IT and the wildlife scampering between buildings; we saw cottontail rabbits and quail and even a wily coyote. What a Deal!

“Must see, others take note.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is an attraction we have visited twice on two seperate trips to Las Vegas. It has outdoor and indoor museum exhibits. This is a must see and do attraction. They have the history of Nevada and especially the area around Las Vegas NV as the main subject. From the early prehistoric days to today. A history of Las Vegas is also on site. The area is highlighted by an outdoor museum that allows you to walk through the desert area of Henderson NV from the Indians thru the first settlers and their camps to the building and support of Las Vegas today. You can relive yesterday by touring buildings moved to the site and restored as a small town in as little restoration as possible to allow the originality of the site, including furniture, vehicles, dishes, clothing, accessories of particular decades. My first trip I did meet and chat with Mark, he was very accommadating. Just a fantastic addition to a visit to Las Vegas.
This place is very easy to get to from Las Vegas. Just follow the signs to Hoover Dam and when you get on the outskirts of Henderson NV, look for Museum signs in the area of the College Drive, and jump two minutes off I-515 to Boulder Blvd.
If you are a history buff, don't miss this place.
