The Clark County Museum doesn't just tell visitors about the history of Southern Nevada--it shows them with historic buildings and artifacts. Located in Henderson, this unique museum is home to a street of restored historic buildings that were transferred to the museum's grounds. Visitors can walk through the buildings and experience a trip back in time to one of several prior eras. In addition to the houses along Heritage Street, the museum's 30 acres include an exhibit hall, a "ghost town," mining equipment, a train depot and vintage train cars, a caboose and a 1918 Union Pacific steam engine. The majority of the museum takes visitors outside and includes a half-mile nature trail where guests can see native flora and fauna.
