Default Family Bargain

The Clark County Museum on the east side of Las Vegas valley is a 30 acre site history museum is a must for families of all ages! Children from 3-17 only pay $1, and seniors pay $1. Toddlers are free, and adults only $2! You can almost spend the whole day here , as there is plenty to see and do. But bring a picnic lunch. No food or drink , other than a water fountain. The main hall has exhibits and a gift shop. Across the way is a nature trail. But the best part is the street of historic homes you can self tour. They are all furnished according to their time period (1912-1950's), and have mannikans dressed in the correct period clothes. Then there is the print shop, train depot, and caboose you can walk through, a wedding chapel that came from the Strip, and a railway cottage (the only house you cannot enter...but you MUST look in the window to see the incredible rustic and authentic furnishings! Train buffs will also like the huge steam locomotive and a few other railway cars, next to the train depot. Oh, I didn't mention the red barn, and the gazebo. Heritage Street is SO SHADY and green, you feel as if you are somewhere else. But the desert climate is definatly felt when you walk through the Mining and Ghost Town Trail. Here there are old cars, old buildings, and my favorite, the old Jail you can walk through. If you watch the History Channel's Pawn Stars, you may see the museum administrator, Mark Hall-Patton there. He sometimes comes out of his office to sign copies of his book, or have his picture taken with visitors, Amish hat and all. Its the best deal in the Southwest!

Attraction Info:
