Nevada State Museum Tours

27 Reviews
Nevada State Museum
Prehistoric fossils, atomic explosions, and a foray into Las Vegas’ mobster days; these aren’t things people expect from their Las Vegas vacation. However, a trip to the Nevada State Museum reveals all of this and more. It’s a place where you can swap casinos for culture and immerse yourself in the natural history of Nevada.  

The Basics
Most Las Vegas vacationers never get past the bright lights of the strip. By visiting the Nevada State Museum, you can experience historic happenings from across the state without traveling far. Book your admission to the museum—and the nearby Springs Preserve—in advance to save time on the day. Both provide a tranquil escape from Vegas.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum is a must for history and culture enthusiasts.
  • You can explore the surrounding grounds by walking a trail or taking a trackless train.
  • The museum is wheelchair and stroller accessible.
  • The museum has a programme of temporary exhibits; check the website before you go to see what’s on.

How to Get There
The Nevada State Museum is located at the Springs Preserve and can be reached by public transportation or by car. If you’re driving from the Strip, head west on Flamingo Road to Valley View Boulevard and then follow Valley View to the Meadows Lane intersection; Spring Preserve should be on your right.

When to Get There
The museum is open 9am to 5pm Tuesday through Sunday. It’s closed on Mondays and on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. While the air-conditioned museum is a nice place to get away from the desert heat, if you want to explore hiking trails of the surrounding preserve consider visiting in the early morning or evening.

Exhibits at the Nevada State Museum
The museum boasts an interactive display that details the geological progression of the Great Basin to the development of Las Vegas as an international resort destination. Along the way, you can learn about the state’s flora and fauna and human history; hear stories of Native Americans and miners; and discover more about the construction of the Hoover Dam and the atomic era in Nevada.

Hidden gems of Las Vegas
, Feb 2020
Free parking and lots of it. They started building the site in 1983. When we first entered it didn't look like much but as you progress through the site it just gets better and better. We were there for 5 hours and did not see it all. It is wonderful, nature at its finest. Also you learn about how people lived in the desert and how we use those same principles today. The two Nevada State Museums at the end are excellent as well. This was tour was well worth the money and great for families. A tip for visiting Las Vegas: don't miss visiting the following two gems! Red Rock Canyon ( only 20 minutes or so from the strip ) Cost per car $15 for all day! Valley of Fire ( about a 1 hour 25 min. drive down the freeway from the strip ) Cost $10 per car all day. Don't let the drive out there fool you into thinking you are wasting your time as it looks bleak and looks like nothing is there. These two areas will make you think your on another planet! They both offer hiking at every stop along the way! They are both jaw dropping nature experiences! When you go back to Las Vegas from the Valley of Fire stop at the gas station truck stop to fuel up ( its the only one out there and gas is cheap). Inside you will see a little cafe, we took a chance and ate there after asking the staff at the gas station how good the food was. Remember its a truck stop so they have to be good. The food is outstanding and well priced, with fast friendly service too. You will be glad you ate there!

Went to booth, and they sent us to ticket taker. Who was still confused. It would have been easier to just purchase tics at window.
Absolutely beautiful area to walk...

Absolutely beautiful area to walk around. Many hand-on, educational exhibits for children, but interesting for adults too. A perfect escape from the bustle of the Strip.
