Nevada State Museum
AAA Editor Notes
Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas is on the grounds of The Springs Preserve at 333 S. Valley View Blvd. The history of Nevada comes alive at this impressive interactive museum, where video touch screens, audio stations and even holograms help tell the story of the Silver State. The 13,000-square-foot main gallery covers it all, from the Great Basin's geology and prehistoric beasts (including the skeleton of a 250 million-year-old ichthyosaur) to Native Americans, early settlers, miners, railroaders and ranchers.

You'll also find exhibits covering the Hoover Dam and Nevada's atomic bomb testing site. Old-school Vegas aficionados will treasure display cases filled with vintage hotel/casino ephemera, antique slot machines and sparkly showgirl costumes. A temporary gallery hosts changing exhibits. The museum store carries a wide selection of Nevada and Vegas-centric history books, Nevada-sourced products, and gift items related to the museum's collections and exhibits.

Note: The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, which differs from The Springs Preserve's daily schedule.
