Nevada State Museum

5 of 12

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From a cramped and outdated building, the Nevada State Museum flings open the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.
