The basics

Step back in time as you walk through restored historic homes that once resided in other locales around the state’s southernmost county, and get spooked in a reconstructed ghost town. The museum also includes a vast outdoor area with old trains, as well as an indoor exhibit space showcasing a timeline of Nevada from prehistoric times to present day.

Find plenty of information about the American Indian tribes who lived in the county, railroad development, and the famous Anna Roberts Parks. Guided tours from Las Vegas are available, and typically include stops at other area museums.

How to get there

Located at 1830 South Boulder Highway in Henderson, Nevada, the Clark County Museum is about 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip by car via I-515. Some guided tours do provide roundtrip transportation from hotels on the Strip. If you don’t have a car, it’s worth taking the shuttle from the Strip to nearby Sam’s Town, then grabbing a taxi from there to the museum.

Neon Museum

Another blast from the past, the Neon Museum contains an impressive collection of signs from historic Las Vegas buildings. Discarded signs from hotels such as the Stardust, Moulin Rouge, Desert Inn, Aladdin, and Flamingo now lay to rest in what’s known as the Boneyard. The museum is sometimes combined with the city’s other attractions like the Mob Museum on guided tour itineraries.
