Part museum, part botanical garden, and part preserve, with a good restaurant, and nice views. Once we found the Springs Preserve we made it a staple and have encouraged friends to visit. It is great for kids and adults and has a lot to offer. Plan on spending several hours.

This is a marvellous place, just on the door step of the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas but worlds apart in terms of beauty and tranquility. The whole place is wonderfully laid out with some truly beautiful gardens and plants. As other reviews have mentioned, the butterfly house is small but very lovely and the Nevada Museum is really...

Booked online through Viator when looking for places to go a bit different from usual Vegas experience. Took a taxi which was around $30 from Vegas bit out of the way but knew it would be . Didn't appear to be much when we pulled up but what a surprise . So well organised . We were early so just... More

I had seen this online of things to do in Vegas so we decided to get away from the strip and check it out. We were not disappointed. We even went back the next day!! There is so much to see and do one day was just not enough. The first day we spent a couple of hours in the... More

The cashier at the entrance did mention that the butterfly attraction had closed for the day, already. Didn't mention that we were paying for less than an hour before closing.

We have visited Vegas so many times and have never visited the reserve. What a hidden treasure. Could not believe how large the complex is. The negative comments on the website are really uncalled for are there is something for everybody . The layout of the reserve is very attractive and tranquil in the garden areas. My husband and I...

Enjoyed the entire experience. Did not get to the state musuem, not enough time. Saw the animal show. Very educational. Took the tour of the botanical gardens. Our guide Andy Anderson was extremely knowledgeable. Devoted a lot of time. Took the train ride around the facility. Not worth the extra money. There is a narration but, most of the people... More

Another great place to visit off the strip. Wide variety of exhibits, gardens, history, kid's activities. The cafe served good food with a view. Great butterfly exhibit

Pleasant small desert preserve in the middle of the city, not far from downtown. Nothing much exciting, but a good place to relax and meditate and to commune with nature. Turn into the driveway at 333 S. Valley View (across the street and away from Meadows Mall on Valley View). Drive to the large parking lot. Walk around. Relax. Enjoy.... More

After checking out of our hotel room, my husband and I needed something to do, and pictures I had seen of Springs Preserve had put it on my "to do" list some time ago. We went primarily for the hiking and the botanical gardens. Our visit was in October, and I think the Mojave Desert environment might be more attractive... More
