Fodor's Expert Review Clark County Museum
Step into the past (quite literally) at this modest museum, a 30-acre site that features a modern exhibit hall with a time-line exhibit about southern Nevada from prehistoric to modern times. The facility also offers a collection of restored historic buildings that depict daily life from different decades in Las Vegas, Boulder City, Henderson, and Goldfield. Other attractions include a replica of a 19th-century frontier print shop, and a 1960s wedding chapel that once stood on the Las Vegas Strip. There are also buildings and machinery dating from the turn of the 20th century, a nature trail, and a small ghost town. If you can't get to the Las Vegas Springs Preserve, on the North Side of town, this is a worthwhile substitute.
