Great place to go learn about Nevada history. Gift shop is great! Definitely take water if you go on the train tour during the summer.
Great historical items, stories and visuals, fun activities for kids/families. We did not visit the habitat/garden or animals we got there a bit late and only has 45 min left to browse through everything. You need to buy tickets online there are no ticket sales at the museum. Inexpensive field trip for the family.
This whole facility is awesome. Today we visited the state and origen museums. Both were fantastic. They are very well put together, detailed and the descriptions are an easy read with pertinent information. We love to read about everything and this was just enough but also not overwhelming to someone who just wants to casually learn. There are many interactive exhibits that kids and adults would enjoy. They have multiple "little shows" that are fun but really help kids understand the history of Nevada. There is something for everyone at Spring's Preserve.
The outdoor space is not enjoyable from May through September. The museum is lovely. Great history, including Native American history and natural history.
At the Springs Preserve. Go to the Main Entrance for tickets to both. Excellent and a must see
