Las Vegas's Best New Attractions

Las Vegas's best new attractions: Nevada State Museum

Nevada Commission on Tourism

Nevada State Museum

Reopens October 28, 2011. From a cramped and outdated building, the Nevada State Museum flings open the doors to its $50 million museum—and its showpiece, the 43-foot-long ichthyosaur—in the Springs Preserve. For those who know the massive preserve and its interactive “edutainment” format, think more of the same. For those who don’t, imagine a touch screen to tell the story of continental drift, a cave to explore, and a 3-D movie about the desert at night. Springs Preserve; 333 S. Valley View Blvd. at US 95; (702) 486-5205.
