This 180-acre cultural learning attraction sits on the site where there used to be natural springs. Here you can discover the city of Las Vegas’ rich history that’s far more than just bright lights and casinos. Take a hike through desert landscapes only a few miles away from the Vegas Strip. Meet desert tortoises, snakes and spiders in the live animal exhibit.
The whole family will enjoy riding on a historical train on a 20 minute narrated journey. The Butterfly Habitat teaches you about these fascinating insects and what their lives are like. We love the Botanical Gardens – an 8 acre garden area showcasing different kinds of desert plant-life. The Nevada State Museum is also on site.
