We really enjoyed this museum and spent a couple of hours here. You pay at the gift shop than proceed to an attached building with a display about the Vegas area from prehistoric time to WWI. It was very interesting and I found myself reading...More

Great place to visit, very affordable, just a few dollars. A good assortment of historical items, and very friendly staff. I'd say to expect to spend an hour or so here.

Well done exhibits, polite volunteers. We spent the better part of 3 hours wandering around and could have spent more. We'll be back.

There is a little bit of everything relating to Clark County history. It is well worth the visit. Take your time to soak in the times of long ago.

We decided to visit this museum on our trip to Henderson. It's a great little museum and only cost $2 (seniors were $1). They have some houses from the early days of Vegas and they were interesting to see.

Price to get in to Clark County Heritage Museum is only $2 pp when we were there. Is quite a ways out of town so probably would need a rental car - if don't want rental car for whole time, perhaps ask at your hotel to see... More
