The LV Springs Preserve has a couple of interesting spotlights: namely those provided by the NV Energy Department which provided some interesting conservation and sustainable displays. But don't go looking for a trail map - none to be found anywhere and once you embark on a trail, it will take you to noman's land - no trail signs, no landmarks... More

The Springs Preserve is something you don't expect to find minutes from downtown Las Vegas. The Springs Preserve is a great to explore the valley's history through interactive science and nature exhibits, a botanical garden, hiking, trails, and live animal shows. I got the most amazing photograph of a dragonfly on a tip of a reed. The Botanical Garden at... More

Lots of interesting displays but I found out that the butterfly habitat was opening the next day so I'll need to come back. The silver state building seemed geared towards adults mostly with adult themes such as casinos and the Folies Bergere. Children will enjoy seeing the desert tortoise and fox that live outdoors. I think going on a weekend... More

We went on a Saturday and it was free that day due to artist's vendors. The activities for the children were great, with plenty of things to keep the little ones occupied. They had great gift shop and really good pizza at their cafe. Ripley's was their current traveling show.

My husband and I are from out of town and found this place online. It is a lovely facility with many interesting exhibits. We spent a good half a day there. They have a variety of different exhibits which will interest adults or children. It appears they have a regular rotation of temporary exhibits as well. For instance we saw... More

2 adults and 2 kids (10 & 6). Spent hours here (could have spent longer, but was a little cold (50) and the butterfly exhibit was not open yet. Purchased the annual pass as it's good at hundreds of places around the US. Just the inside exhibits we easily spent two hours on. The cafe closed a little too early... More

We maintain an annual membership and take our grandkids frequently. The exhibits change every few months so something new to explore often. There are special events like the Hawaiian dancing and culture on weekends. Our grandkids are 4 and 6 and they love the interactive exhibits and "town building". They also love seeing the animal exhibits. We usually take the... More

The Springs Preserve was a great way for our family to spend a day in Las Vegas. The staff encourages visitors to start the tour in the Origen Museum, which gives an overview of the origins of the springs which led to the start of Las Vegas, and includes plenty of hands-on science and history exhibits to enjoy. We strolled... More
