About 20 miles from the Vegas Strip on Boulder Highway on the way to Hoover, this is a great history lesson to get you primed for the dam era.
The inside exhibits focus on the history of southern Nevada, from the Paiute and early mining to the railroad and legalized casinos. Outside are train cars, the Candlelight Wedding Chapel, and Heritage Street, with seven original houses from Goldfield (1905), Henderson, and downtown Vegas. Then wander out to haunt the ghost town. Well worth the $2 to see it all.
