History
On April 20, 1968, the very first public museum in the Vegas Valley opened in a condemned gymnasium in downtown Henderson. Fifty years later, the Clark County Museum has moved, changed names and become a pre-eminent location for learning the history of Southern Nevada. Coinciding with the anniversary, the County is showing a new exhibit, “50 Years of Preserving History: Celebrating the Golden Anniversary of the Clark County Museum,” a look back at the history and growth of the oldest and largest museum in the Las Vegas Valley, whose collection numbers about 1 million artifacts.

Exhibit
One of our favorite museums, Clark County Museum celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018. The new temporary exhibit “50 Years of Preserving History: A Celebration of the Golden Anniversary of the Clark County Museum” opened March 9 and runs through August 26.
