Fodor's Expert Review Lost City Museum
The Moapa Valley has one of the finest collections of ancestral Puebloan artifacts in the American Southwest. Lost City, officially known as Pueblo Grande de Nevada, was a major outpost of the ancient culture. The museum's artifacts include baskets, weapons, a restored Basketmaker pit house, and black-and-white photographs of the excavation of Lost City in the 1920s and '30s. To get to the Lost City Museum from Valley of Fire, turn around on the park road and head back to the T intersection at the eastern entrance to Valley of Fire. Turn left and drive roughly 8 miles into Overton. Turn left at the sign for the museum. Kids get in free.
