Good historical background on the area. Small local museum with artifacts. Well laid out information on local families. Worrth visiting if also going to Valley of fire, and coming into Overton for food, or returning to Vegas from that end of the park. Recreated Pueblos outside on the museum grounds were interesting, as were gardens.

Quaint little museum around an hour north of Vegas. Documents the remnants of an old pueblo village that was discovered around 1930's before filling Lake Mead. Interesting, but not a lot to see. We learned more from watching their short videos; only a handful of actual artifacts on display (most items were modern replicas). So don't expect to be wow'd; but if you are into history/archeology, it makes a very pleasant afternoon trip.

We loved our visit to this little GEM of a museum. The advertisements tend to show the pueblo buildings but the museum itself is right there too and well worth visiting. We spent a good couple of hours there and enjoyed the two short films, the multiple exhibits which were highly descriptive and finally the excellent gift shop. Well worth the visit!!

We stopped there on the way to Utah. If you live in Las Vegas, it is worth going to at least once. There's a lot of information about the history of moapa and surrounding areas. My kids liked shopping at the little gift shop.

This is a good little side trip while visiting Las Vegas if it's not pool weather. About an hour north of Las Vegas. It's a small museum but the drive along Moapa Valley Blvd is beautiful. This museum has the artifacts recovered from when the Pueblos lived in the area prior to Lake Mead being formed. They realized that once the lake was filled the history of this city would be lost, thus The Lost City Museum. Very interesting story of what all they found and the story it tells of the culture that once lived in the area. It also tells of the animals that lived in this area from many many years ago and the fossils they came across. The museum has 2 short films to see and outside there are replicas of buildings that were lived in. Plenty of parking, even for large vehicles. Restrooms are available as well as gift shop.

The Museum is about a pueblo culture that was discovered not long ago in a place where hunters and gatherers were the norm. There were a number of artifacts on display - beautiful pots, tools, etc. There is also a replica of how the pueblo would have been set up. Be sure to see the video as it is informative. The staff we saw was all volunteer, friendly and very invested in the project. We didn’t have this booked into our plans but spent at least an hour and a half there. We also bought several things at their excellent museum shop. As an aside, they offer covered kennels for dogs during the summer....

This museum, about 70 miles NW of Las Vegas, is well worth visiting. There are displays and a great video of Pueblo culture with reconstructions inside and on the grounds..

This is a hidden gem of a museum. Very friendly staff, great selection of artifacts and only $5 to enter. If you have an hour to spare and are in this area I would highly recommend stopping in. I even got some very cool little trinkets at the gift shop that were really inexpensive Native American related things. I learned quite a bit while there also so it was a very enjoyable visit. I can strongly recommend seeing it.
