Take the train ride around the Preserve so you can get an overview. The butterfly exhibit is amazing and the flowering cactus are beautiful! What a great treat just a hop skip and a jump from The Strip. Nature at it's finest.

If you enjoy nature and history over noise and commercialism, then you'll enjoy the Springs. It is within sight of the Strip and Downtown, so you shouldn't miss the opportunity if you have 2-3 hours. From the moment I parked, I was excited to see that the parking area was covered with solar panels giving the cars shade while supplying... More

We went for the Ohana festival so it was very crowded, but still enough space to enjoy. Very interesting museum and history of how Vegas started. The Ripleys Believe or Not room was terrific. We definitely will go back because there is so much to explore there!

Wonderful day out of the city. Take the kids, take the parents and grandparents and enjoy the day. Highlights for me were the old Nevada buildings at Boomtown and speaking to the docent there. We also met a water authority engineer who was on the road, and he was very informative. There was a wedding being set up and it... More

Went on an educational visit with young children who very much enjoyed it. We didn't get time to cover the whole site because there was so much to see, experience and learn. Although it's timetabled to close at 5pm most areas, except the gift shop, seemed to be shut up by 4.30pm. As tourists wanting to know more about the... More

Went with friends visiting from out of town. The young lady selling tickets tried to overcharge our guests. Poor first impression. They were out of maps showing the property at the ticket booth so we were instructed to ask where we showed our tickets. There were multiple elevators that didn't work which required the handicapped member of our party to... More

Have been here several times with five grandkids, ages 4 - 14. Always had a blast! There are exhibits, indoors and out, to interest all ages including adults. The butterfly exhibit offers a beautiful hands on experience with nature. The Parrot performance was amazing and so entertaining. Exhibits and shows change throughout the year so multiple trips a year are... More
