Description

County history museum with exhibits on Native Americans, mining, railroads, gaming and historic houses plus a ghosttown.

The Clark County Museum is a function of Clark County Parks and Recreation, which is accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies. The museum is a 30-acre site that features a modern exhibit hall with a timeline exhibit about southern Nevada from pre-historic to modern times and a collection of restored historic buildings that depict daily life from different decades in Las Vegas, Boulder City, Henderson, and Goldfield.

Points of interest include, Heritage Street which is a unique collection of historic homes, restored to recreate the lifestyles of important periods in local history. Revisit the news at a replicated 1900s newspaper print shops. Railroad buffs will enjoy touring the 1932 Boulder City Depot and see a real 1918 Union Pacific steam engine and walk through an old-time Crummy, (railroad talk for caboose). Enter a mining exhibit filled with mineral specimens, wander though a resurrected ghost town and a half-mile nature trail... visit a pueblo of the ancient ones. No matter what your age, the Clark County Museum is a place where you can explore the rich and colorful history of Southern Nevada.

The Anna Robert Parks Exhibit Hall takes the museum visitors through a historical journey from the Ice Age to Age of Entertainment. The timeline chronicles the history and culture of the ancient Pueblo and more recent Paiute, the first Anglo pioneers and their daily lives, early town-sites and land auction camps, mining technology and the gaming and entertainment heritage of Las Vegas. The Heritage Gallery changing exhibits feature art and artifacts in their historical context. Heritage Street homes offer doorways into past decades, from the 1910s to the 1970s. The Boulder City depot and collection of railroad cars recall the railroad heritage of southern Nevada, while the arrested decay along the Ghost Town and Mining Trail offers a perspective on life in the hot and arid Southwest environment.
