A favorite local museum. Holds special meaning as my great grandfather Fay Perkins was the main archaeologist that put it all together. Here you can find the history of the Native Americans of the Southern Nevada region. Fascinating displays tell the story.

It’s a few rooms inside, and replica houses outside. Very informative videos and exhibition. The gift shop’s selection is amazing local art, jewelery, books and t-shirts, small keepsakes and very affordable.
